The biblical story of the children of Israel ” is one of forgetfulness.

When the Israelites forgot the God of Abraham , of you and protects you still, you suffer the consequences at the hands of a number of suffering in a cruel and fallen world. Sometimes it is in Egypt, it is sometimes in Babylon and sometimes it is in a profession of their own promised land.

In their pain they cry to their maker for release and relief, and they are delivered. But before Moses can return to them with the law, Aaron and the others are already to forget themselves, and the great Jehovah that you are saved. Their leader is already used to worship at the feet of the Golden calf.

It is the story of the ancient Hebrews, but it is also very much the history of the Americans. If we forget the suffering brought about by our failure, we are sure to fail again.

The Americans today are able to observe, such as the generation passes, the in a poignant way. The split-screen memories of Aretha Franklin and John McCain are reasonable and move on their own. Two extraordinary life of benefits to be achieved.

No matter your language, faith, skin color or faith, to hear, to sing Franklin, “How I Got Over” would consider any person at least the possibility that God is real and His spirit is in our midst.

To think no matter the policy or the preferred policy, McCain’s sacrifice for the country to which he would be served, even the cold cynic reason that it is something really exceptional about our nation.

But there is something revealing about what is happening to your generation and our country in this moment.

Baby boomers’ ascension changed the world. What was the biggest age group in American history in essence, the concept of adolescence was invented by the titans of the industry bent to your whims of taste in culture and Commerce re-invented and our policy.

The generation of the arrival in the adult life is marked with the assassination of John F. Kennedy. In the 15 years, the bear followed in our country, an era of destruction and unrest, marred by a deep corruption in the government, in America, the first defeat in war, internal riots in our largest cities, in a crisis of confidence in the American experiment.

Franklin well knew, the roar of pain surrounded that know the fight for the descendants of slaves, to, true equality in a nation that had denied it to them and their forbearers.

McCain knew the consequences when our government lies about the conduct of the war and the demands of the victim of his people in the pursuit of unclear goals.

But we will forget their lessons.

We live in a time where the problems of race ruthlessly exploited for narrow political advantages. We also live in an era in which the very definitions of truth and responsibility in doubt.

of the reason why we play so carefree, with questions, which is so potent that those who lived to leave by the consequences of our past forgetfulness of our presence. We lose our collective memory, as we are the ones to pay the price to lose, if we had lost the path before.

We join our prayers with those in mourning, but we also pray that we would not have to suffer as much as the generation before, to learn the same lesson that the children of Israel.

“Controversies between the nation and its members or citizens, can only be correctly referenced to the national courts. Any other plan would be contrary to reason, to precedent and decorum.” – Alexander Hamilton, Federalist No. 80

Time: “research has shown again and again that she is grateful is good for your health, mood and General well-being. In fact, it is one of the easiest things you can do to boost your mental health. … The research, recently published in Psychological science, says that people who appreciate chronic the power of gratitude, and overestimate how awkward will it be that prevents might be in the simple, but effective practice. … Amit Kumar[‘s], an assistant professor of marketing at the University of Texas at Austin, McCombs School of Business … research were a series of experiments. Each differed slightly, but the General concept has remained the same: the people were invited, a letter to someone in your life, Express gratitude. Before sending the letters, the authors were asked how they expected to respond by the recipient. The researchers surveyed recipients about their actual reactions.”
