Change no to yes

A total of 46.2 million Americans are at poverty level. Does it mean that a lot of our children go to bed hungry?

From all corners of our beautiful country we hear “no” to everything our president proposes in his efforts to correct this problem.

On the other side, we even hear shouts of “Yeah” from the audience (Sept. 12 tea party-sponsored GOP debate on CNN) to the proposition that a man in a coma should be left to die because he had no health insurance.

How low did we fall? Did we become like the ancient Romans applauding the killing of the Christians?

The Apostle James teaches us that there is no faith without good deeds (James 2:14), which implies that we are our brother’s keeper, or should be.

Why can’t we, for a change, replace this immoral philosophy of “no” to “yes?”

What we do have to lose, but save our beloved country?
