America at the Brink
As I write this letter, I’m on a plane leaving Atlanta, where the governor just declared a state of emergency and called out the National Guard. This action was precipitated by destruction and violence on Atlanta’s streets.
On Saturday night, July 4, when all Americans should have been peacefully celebrating Independence Day, violence took the life of eight-year-old Secoriea Turner. This innocent young black girl had the misfortune of being in a car that encountered a Black Lives Matter mob. When her mother tried to maneuver around a barrier they had erected, two of the protesters shot into the car, killing Secoriea instantly.
Since the deaths of George Floyd in Minneapolis and Rayshard Brooks in Atlanta during police encounters, many more black citizens have died at the hands of criminals now terrorizing our cities. The perpetrators are black, and the victims are black.
Over the July 4th weekend, three kids were murdered: eight-year-old Secoriea in Atlanta, a seven--year-old girl in Chicago and an 11-year year old boy in Washington, D.C. These victims are not gang bangers, drug dealers or street criminals; they’re innocent children. Several young children were also killed during the Fathers Day weekend.
Yet Black Lives Matter leaders have not expressed a shred of compassion. They’re not interested in saving black lives but in destroying America. They are against family, against God, against freedom and against the Judeo-Christian values that undergird our nation. They are Marxists demanding that we all bow to their perverse vision for this country.
Our organization is called STAND – Staying True to America’s National Destiny – because we believe that America is a providential nation whose destiny is not socialism or communism. America was not established as a totalitarian nation, but a land of liberty. Nor were we established to be a secular, atheist nation. We were created to be a nation of Godly virtue. That is our destiny, and we will accept no other.
Help us at STAND to keep fighting the good fight of faith and liberty. Please make the most generous donation you can today.
On Tuesday, July 14 at 2 p.m., Americans will gather in cities, towns, counties and capitals to STAND in Prayer for America. Activists in at least 24 states will join us. If you would like to lead or join one of our prayer rallies, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
George Washington, in his first Thanksgiving Proclamation as president of the United States, said:
“It is the duty of nations to acknowledge the Providence of Almighty God, to obey His will, to humbly implore His favor and protection....”
Statues of Washington are being torn down and his character and honor impugned because like most wealthy men of his day, he owned slaves. Yet, he understood that America could not succeed without God. He was not perfect, but George Washington was a great American, perhaps the greatest in our history. He was a warrior for liberty, and we have all inherited the freedom for which he risked his life. When the Marxists are long forgotten, George Washington will be remembered.
His vision for America is captured in his favorite scripture:
But everyone shall sit under his vine and under his fig tree, And no one shall make them afraid; For the mouth of the LORD of hosts has spoken. (Micah 4:4)
Marxists, communists, socialists, abortionists, LGBTQ, Antifa and Black Lives Matter activists are charting a different vision for our country. It is a vision of hatred, division, immorality, anarchy, chaos, murder and dictatorial oppression. It is the same genocidal nightmare that Marxism always produces.
They must be stopped. We must pull America back from the brink!
We will fight them at the ballot box. We will fight them in the courts. We will fight them in city hall, and we will peacefully oppose them in the streets. They are on the devil’s side, but we will win because we are on God’s side. Your contribution today will help us keep fighting.
Racial conflict is being spun up to a fever pitch. We must answer these anti-American demagogues. We must expose their communist propaganda. We must meet them on every field and defeat them with the truth. The American people are watching in horror as this situation unfolds. We must give them hope.
We will not rest until the lies of Marxism and the plans of communism have been purged from our culture and politics.
Thank you for your continued support. God bless you and your family and may He bless the United States of America to stay true to our national destiny.
