The Strength of a Nation

The strength of a Nation is not found in the blind commitment to a political party.
It is found in the undying devotion to one's family and country.


The strength of a nation is not found in the celebration of the rich and the famous.
It is found in the acknowledgment and assistance of its poor and forgotten.


The strength of a nation is not found in the symbolic ceremonial praise of God.
It is found in each individual's dedication to God's word and law.


The strength of a nation is not found in banks, stores, safes, boardrooms, and conventions.
It is found in homes, in schools, and in the heart of each individual willing to make a difference.


The strength of a nation is not found in the ability to wage war or keep peace.
It is found in the wisdom and purity that sees no need for either.


The strength of a nation is not found on a flag or in its written history.
It is found in the love, compassion, kindness, and generosity of each of its citizens.
