Where to start? Being a transplanted Canadian typically not interested in reading about history, politics and religion this was far from my typical reading material on death and dying (I’m a nurse) and took conviction on my part to read but was worth every moment of my time.
In my humble opinion, Ms.Swains book is a must read for every resident of the United States and any one interested in the roots and cornerstone of ‘American patriotism’ such as ‘morality, virtue, values and principles’ which are not merely a result of the constitution but also entwined with appreciation to God for his gifts and mercy. Her writing serves as a wake up call because it is time to remove the veil of shame that currently blankets Christianity and is threatening to fracture the United States of America. She reminds Americans that it is time to rediscover and stand fast in the Countries Christian roots by providing insights guiding the reader to see beyond the triggers used by the media; politicians and free mongers to sell the anti-Christian/anti-American polarizing agenda.
Life is about choices and Ms. Swain reminds us in her final chapter that we can no longer overlook the impact our choices are having on the Country. It is time to turn our attention to God and studying his word for guidance as we then look inward to process His word and internalize His message of morality; ethics; virtue and values. Then and only then can we can reach out to reclaim what makes America unique, its deep Christian roots.
Thank you Ms. Swain for speaking your truth.
