    Happy New Year ,friends and family, colleagues , unknown
    and foes.
    From the well dressed to the moderate to the one in kmart and thrift store clothes.
    Sturdy yourself and hold on tight and gather good will with all your might.
    Cause we are in for a hell of a fight!
    Wish we could have been kinder to each other , even after 9/11
    wish all those people wouldn't have had to die and go unexpectedly to heaven.
    Wish the people in this nation could have come together in the face of the enemy and not allow "Thugs to reign in the White house". Wish we had stepped straight up to him and Jeb and said "Are you a man or a mouse?" Had to cheat to defeat!
    Wish the Bushes hadn't dragged the rest of the world into their Family Feud with Osama and 'nem.
    "And all of the President's Men!"
    Wish Precious Baby Doe had never died...
    Cause she was five years old and they chopped off her head
    and nobody came to name her and claim her!
    I learned that day that evil lives among us!

    Wish we could look past the color of our skin and get things
    on track before we can't turn back!
    Wish it wasn't to late and the train hadn't already left the station and we could truly be ..."One nation under God indivisable with liberty and justice for all!"
    I wish it would have really made a difference when vicitims made that first and last 911 call.
    Wish I could take all of your bad yesterdays and sprayed them with sunshine and peace.
    Wish we could count on politicians , city officials and the police.
    Wish we didn't have people playing God, denying God and then defying God...
    Wish they knew God...
    That would be enough!
    That Holy Righteous stuff...
    Where you won't steal and kill and lie and wish for your momma to die! No sadness, madness, savagery, deceit and disharmony...just Christ's victory!
    Wish it was right NOW!
