I’ve been rereading The Century lately. I long for the days when our country had freedom (although I really only caught the tail end of it). Reading this book, which chronicles the 20th century, gives me hope.
I see so much of ourselves in this book. The financial struggles of the 1930s (although I think that we probably are faring somewhat better), the communists and radicals of the 60s, the loss of face from the 70’s, the corruption. We survived it all, because Americans woke up. The World War II generation worked hard in war then got their freedoms back. Reagan replaced Carter. The people rejected communism.
We have tough times ahead. But maybe we will get through it.
I saw Herman Cain on Beck today. He rocks. I pray that perhaps he is the Reagan that we have been waiting for.
