I was born on January 9, 1972, and the USA was at war with Vietnam but ended in 1973. The battle cost many soldiers’ lives and taxpayers much money for a fight many didn’t support. It was never officially a war cause the US Congress never officially declared war, so the government of American didn’t help the military try and win the war. The country of Vietnam had been in conflict since 1955, much like Afghanistan has conflicted ever since the 1980s. Northern Vietnamese want full government control (communist), others to keep their freedoms, so the country had war with itself. The French nation tried to help, but the battle was too much, so they pulled out. President John F Kennedy sent American troops to help but soon learned it was a lost cause. JFK may have wanted pulled troops out but was assassinated, so the war lasted a few presidents more. So when President Nixon decides to pull out in 1973, in 1975, Southern Vietnam fell, so many suffered as a result, much like Afghanistan is falling to warlords. I remember watching a Super Bowl game between the Philadelphia Eagles and the Oakland Raiders. The NFL players had a yellow stripe on the back of their helmets, and trees all over the country had yellow ribbons tied around them. It was a symbol and prayer for the hostages to be set free from the hostile Iran nation. President Carter was running for reelection, and Ronald Reagan running against him. Ronald Reagan won and served two terms, from January 1981 to January 1989. It wasn’t long after Reagan took office, the hostage came home. President Reagan didn’t mess around when countries threaten or harmed Americans. On April 15, 1985, Reagan ordered an aerial attack on Libya, against its leader Gaddafi. Gaddafi was responsible for a terrorist attack at a nightclub in Germany, where US servicemen and many others were killed. Gaddafi was very upset, his infant daughter was killed, but stated as long, as Reagan was in the White House, he never tries to attach America again. Reagan started a shop and buy-only made in the USA campaign. He stated to helps support the American economy and keeps jobs and money in American’s pocket, buy from your own country. In 1989, President Ronald Reagan gave American his farewell speech, and he looks pretty proud of his accomplishments, but what, “We the People” did for themselves. He quoted from scripture, Matthew 5, America, to President Ronald Reagan is like a city on a hill. So bright and shiny that, other countries allow freedoms like it, and many people from other countries want to live in America. Reagan did see something that was happening during his final days as president, and it saddens his heart. President Reagan believed many people would love to have freedom of America, so we who live here should love and appreciate it. When the citizens of America, want to be less,” We the People, “ and let the government control everything, the home of the brave become the home wimps. There is pride in rejecting the flag, with the color red that is a symbol of the soldier who died for American’s freedom. Citizenship means nothing when non-citizen get the same benefits but are technically breaking the law. Frederick Douglass was born into slavery but ran away for his freedom. Frederick had more patriotism and love for the USA than most living now and none ever experience slavery-like him. America is moving into more government control; both Republicans and Democrats voters, love their leaders. When their leaders leave office, their city on a hill fades. My city on a hill, brothers, and sisters aren’t a president or the USA; it’s the Lord Jesus Christ, Himself. I want my Jesus glory, I want His light, I want His kingdom, not the USA, not even the spot of land Israel is on. My Heavenly Father, my Lord Jesus Christ, will never change His word to suit me; all of heaven and earth is His. If I want to be a citizen in God’s kingdom, I will follow His words and live by His ways. The kingdom of heaven has walls around it, and the only ones allowed inside are the people who live, by the way, the truth and the light of Jesus Christ Himself. God bless Ronald Reagan, and Frederick Douglass’s and the USA; they loved. I am ready for the kingdom of God to start; how about you. Jesus loves you, and so do I, Samuel J Head, His bondservant.
Matthew 5:14 “You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden; 15 nor do people light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on the lampstand, and it gives light to all who are in the house. 16 Your light must shine before people in such a way that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father who is in heaven.
