Where Do We Go From Here?

Over a week has now passed since the election results poured out on our television screens, as the reality we so desperately sought came crashing down. Across the nation, we sat silently, beginning to again brace ourselves for what another four years will hold. The thought of what America will look like in 2016 has become an inescapable fear.

So where do we go from here?

Yesterday, I was blessed to read a post-election letter from a father to his son. It is poignant, eloquent, and a perfect example of how we must lead our lives from here forward. The flag of surrender must never be raised. If you long for the America that we love, keep fighting. Defend it.

Share this message with those who feel helpless and alone, for we are not alone.

We are never alone.

Dear Son,

I’m sorry for this nation that took the easy way out. We must stand firm in our convictions. This passage is something I found years ago and kept, it’s titled “The Doomed Resistance” from an In Touch article: “What is a King to do then when he knows the worst is coming and there is no way out? Fight anyway!” Respected Christian writer J.R.R. Tolkien refers to this as “faith in the value of the doomed resistance, on the worth of defeated valor”. The idea is that honor lies in fighting the battle even if the outcome will be certain defeat.

Josiah saw this as his duty: Destruction was coming, but he must stay faithful to the Lord anyway. He must not turn against God as many do when bad things happen to them, but rather endeavor to do more, to fight harder not because God would reconsider, but because the fight alone is worth it.

On Election Day you stood firm. You cast your vote for life against death in abortion. God’s law against man’s in gay marriage. Hard work versus theft from hard working people. Keep standing firm.

Love,

Dad

P.S. From Proverbs 21 Verse 31

The horse is made ready for the day of battle, but victory rests with the Lord

About theruminatingconservative

Politics is my absolute passion - bordering on obsession...alright, fine, it's an obsession. For years, I have made a study of all aspects of the political world - both sides of the aisle - on a mission to accumulate a mountain of facts and evidence to show why both sides just can’t be right. We live in a time where too many are too afraid, too under-informed or just too lazy to stand up for their beliefs. That time needs to end. Fantasies, half-truths, lies, emotionally-driven rhetoric and political correctness all stop here. This is education by facts, intelligent debate and gaining an understanding of what is truly at stake each and every day in the greatest nation this planet has ever witnessed. Come with me... This is The ARC.
