Candidates lack good solutions for nation

Almost daily we are being bombarded by the devouring mania of embedded hatred and disorder.

We have a president who has his head embedded by excusing radical Islam and endorsing the Black Lives Matter concept.

Either he is blinded or maybe elated by the division in this country. I for one have given up on him as a human being.

Sadly, I don’t see a presidential candidate to find a solution.

There is Donald Trump, who only fans the flames of racial as well as religious disobedience. Trump is the 13-year-old bully who never grew up. Yet people embrace his rhetoric. I do feel sorry for them.

Barack Obama is pushing for a gun ban because we have twisted people using guns, knives, bombs and vehicles, etc., to kill people. What next, a ban on motor vehicles?

We as Americans need to open up our eyes. Our government won’t defend us. We the people must defend one another.

The direction we are taking will only lead to desolation and despair. To save our nation, we must direct ourselves to rediscover our constitutional values. If not, we will fall like other nations in the past.

If you don’t like this country, then get out.

Card found, thanks to you

I had an absolute miracle happen to me on Wednesday. I stupidly put my SD camera card with all my photos on it in my pants pocket and had my pictures developed at Walgreen, did errands at Staples, and ended up at Walmart.

When I arrived at home and reached into my pocket to place my card back into my camera, it was not there. I called each merchant to see if they could help me and if they could retrace my steps. I was devastated to say the least. When my husband got home he took me to retrace my own steps.

I went into each store and asked if the card had been turned in. I praised and thanked my Lord, as it had been turned into lost and found at Walmart.

God is so good and I want to thank the wonderful person who found and turned it in. What are the odds of that? I wish I could thank you in person.  May you be as blessed as I am.
