All Americans should take this message to heart

Many Americans have come to believe that one person really can’t get much done to help solve the multitude of serious problems facing our country. As a result, we stay at home and leave the problem-solving to others. But that doesn’t keep some of us from complaining about conditions in the U.S. and the world. We often complain when it appears no progress is being made toward solving our nation’s many problems. That has to change. Good men and women must step up and be counted and that requires that they get involved. Let’s see what a gentleman from Ireland had to say about civic involvement way back in the 18th century.

All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.

Edmund Burke

Irish orator, philosopher, & politician

(1729 – 1797)

Perhaps what Edmund Burke said hundreds of years ago applies more today than it did even then. Men and women who love our country should get involved and work hard to stamp out the forces of evil wherever those forces might reside. We can’t afford to sit back and “do nothing” any longer.
