Be Strong and Courageous

"Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the Lord your God goes with you; He will never leave you or forsake you." Deuteronomy 31:6.
I've always liked this Cox and Forkum (remember them?) cartoon because it caught a moment in time when time seemed normal, yet it wasn't.

Today, this year, we have to remember the events from 09/11/2001 and now the Benghazi attack on 09/11/2012. Plus we have news from Benghazi this morning that Libya's Foreign Ministry building has been bombed.

Rest assured, as our current crop of politicos try to shove all this under the rug, our adversaries have not forgotten.

We are going to have to hold our politicians' feet to the fire (a strategy that works, just ask the two state senators from Colorado) lest all our fellow countrymens' deaths be in vain, sacrificed to the gods of political correctness run amok. At this point, it does so really matter. Still not buying the "Religion of Peace" bit, either. So sorry, actions speak louder than words, and good intent hasn't prevented any terrorist attacks.

Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be terrified; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go. -Joshua 1:9

Be Strong and Courageous

Why is this so hard to remember and to do?
