Grieve with me, Americans
As we watch the dying flicker of a flame
We thought would never be extinguished.
Grieve with me for that shining city on a hill
As it is trampled underfoot and brought low.
Grieve with me for the soldiers of years gone by
Who so bravely fought for liberty and freedom
Who knew that the blessings of liberty were not just words
But the very foundation of our great country
Pray for the families who lost sons, fathers, daughters
Their tears only dried by knowing that their loved ones
fought valiantly and paid the ultimate price to secure our freedoms.
Salute them with me so that they will never doubt that the ones they loved and miss are revered and cherished by us all.
Yes, grieve with me for America
For our forefathers and the Constitution they constructed for us
For our well being and a bright future in a land so dependent upon God,
Knowing that apart from Him we could do nothing.
Grieve also for the deceived ones. They don’t know what they are doing, and they certainly do not know in whom they have placed their trust. Pray for them.
We love you, America. You will always be to us that shining city on a hill.
We keep you in our hearts to our final breath.

Beautifully written, Geri; very tender. I will pray; our country, such a valiant beautiful country, is under such an attack as I have never seen. Its a battle only God can help us win. Hugs!!

I will and do. 🙁
I will and do. I will also try to maintain the flame of hope
I did a military career, 8 years USN, 13 years USCG. Yes, I do mourn with you. I never thought I would live to see the killing of America.
