Letter: Exercise your blessings, America

Exercise your blessings, America
Do we know how blessed we are? Do we take our independence for granted?
What if we lived in a country where we weren’t allowed to go to church or read our Bible? What if we weren’t allowed to go to church or attend school?
We don’t notice what we have until it’s take away from us. We don’t stop to think how lucky we are. We can go to church seven days a week if we want to or read our Bibles any time we please. We can go to school and get an education. We can tell our friends, our family or anyone we meet on the street about Jesus. But do we take advantage of these freedoms?
Don’t wait until someone, some day, says you can’t do that any longer.
God has blessed the people and America. Let’s pray that he continues to do so. God bless America.
ó Johnsie Lassiter
