Get together, UNITE, or Die

Last month while visiting at my sister in laws home. She invited our family to come to her home for a luncheon after church. She invited friends and family. We were unable to attend due to a conflict, but I asked her the name of her club and she said “the get together club!”  Her club will rotate to other homes once a month. Tonight, we had guests come for a spaghetti dinner, a kind of “get together club” we had dinner, dessert, watched a great movie and talked to each other.

We watched a taped episode of Glenn Beck. I want to say listening to Glenn Beck is more my husband Randy’s thing more  then myself. I sometimes get overwhelmed listening to him, but I have to say he is doing something amazing and I think it is something I want to be a part of.  He has a new project called the 9-12 project and I won’t be able to to explain it as well as I would like, but I will try. Do remember how you felt on 9/11?  How American’s had the grief of loss, the anger of being attacked and the shock. Then came  9/12 when we vowed to hold our children a little tighter, went back to church, thought about how important life and Liberty are and we said we will NEVER FORGET, but guess what we have. I don’t want to say we forgot about 9/11, but we forgot the United America part.  Glenn Beck’s new 9/12 project has 9 principles and 12 values and here is his list.

The Nine Principles

1. America is good.

2. I believe in God and He is the Center of my Life.

3. I must always try to be a more honest person than I was yesterday.

12 Values

  • Honesty
  • Reverence
  • Hope
  • Thrift
  • Humility
  • Charity
  • Sincerity
  • Moderation
  • Hard Work
  • Courage
  • Personal Responsibility
  • Gratitude

4. The family is sacred. My spouse and I are the ultimate authority, not the government.

5. If you break the law you pay the penalty. Justice is blind and no one is above it.

6. I have a right to life, liberty and pursuit of happiness, but there is no guarantee of equal results.

7. I work hard for what I have and I will share it with who I want to. Government cannot force me to be charitable.

8. It is not un-American for me to disagree with authority or to share my personal opinion.

9. The government works for me. I do not answer to them, they answer to me.

Last week I told you of a way to thank our service men and woman.  They protect and serve our country. One of Glenn’s guest talked of how he was wounded and made his way to a small town in Afghanistan and this town ritual was to protect anymore that made their way to their town protect even to the death. We has American don’t want to get involved, it’s not our place. I once watched a show a man was hit by a car, laying in the street and people looked on and no one went to help and he was hit by another car and that driver got out. Would you help, save and protect your fellow man. Families dump other family members and they don’t care about the hurt they caused. What is wrong here? Where is the LOVE THY NEIGHBOR? Love thy neighbor isn’t just our physical neighbor it is our community, family, homeless and neighbors.

After the show we talked about the lists Glenn posted and how we need to get back to basics. Our “get together club”  will meet next month and work on the community part of America we have been missing. Way to go Glenn!
