I Miss George Washington

I hope that I shall always possess firmness and virtue enough to maintain what I consider to be the most enviable of titles, the character of an honest man.

George Washington

Though older than I care to admit, I didn't have the privilege of living during the Presidency of George Washington. I have, however, had the privilege of living in a nation that was shaped by men and women of who shared the integrity and the faith of Washington.

And, though I hadn't the privilege of living during his time of leadership, I miss George Washington and... I am deeply saddened by what passes for leadership in our times.

But I am not discouraged, for I know that God reigns in Heaven and that honest men and women will someday rise again to power. Maybe those honest men and women can include you and I. It's something to think about.

When the wicked rise to power, people go into hiding; but when the wicked perish the righteous thrive.

Proverbs 28:28. NIV
