One Nation Under Fire

By The Patriot

Most people would call her a “little old lady”. And, since she now resides in a nursing home, they might not give her much thought at all. “Out of sight, out of mind.”

But, she is my hero of the week because of her grit and determination.

This is what she said about her current situation: “At first, I did not like being here. But, gradually I have come to understand that I am here for a purpose. God wants me to share His love for the folks here. With the help of some literature shared with me by a friend, I intend to do just that.”

Last I heard, she was.

Imagine that, all of you who are not institutionalized. All of you who are not limited by physical handicaps. All of you who have the privilege of being able to get out and about whenever you please.

A little old lady is showing you, and me, the way to make life better for herself, and others.

Surely she gets the “Shut Up and Do Something” award for this week. But, you are still in the running for next week.
