We live in the greatest and most prosperous nation on earth. We have freedom, beautiful scenery, clean water, a dependable economy, lots of American know-how, and a stable government. God has truly blessed America; there is no doubt about it. We are some of the wealthiest people in the world. Not only are we rich but we also have influence. We are a people that have been empowered! We are global citizens and we have a responsibility to our nation and the world we live in.
From my experience most of us don't know that much about the rest of the world. We are too often caught up in our own little worlds. We need to change this and then with the knowledge we have gained we need to make a difference. There is a lot of injustice in this world and to those who are given much, much is expected. As Americans, as Christians, as global citizens with influence, we are called to make a difference. So whatever it is that you feel is important, use your influence to make a positive difference.
