"A City upon a Hill."

Now that I've had my rant about our gun control laws (please see yesterday's blog) and have viewed Deepak Chopra on the Dylan Rattigan Show (MSNBC), I feel less angry.

Deepak advises us all to send out "peace," peace to the world, actually, using the tools we as humans have devised for peaceful, rather than for evil intent.

I pass that advice along to all of you who read my blog: send "peace" by way of FaceBook, Twitter, Email, MySpace -- anyway at all you can convey the message to like-minded friends and family.

By replacing fear, anger and frustration with peace, we can theoretically change the world and make our beloved country into the vision John Winthrop had in the early 17th century -- "a city upon a hill."

"...we must consider that we shall be as a City upon a Hill, (and that) the eyes of all people are upon us..."

That's what America used to be, looked up to and admired by the rest of the world, strong and resolute yet thoughtful and prayerful.
