Dear Mr. President,

My family and I are rejoicing today as we heard you over the radio for the appointment of Samuel Scalito as a successor to Justice Sandra O’Connor. Our hopes and aspirations have been renewed for the Highest Court in the Land and for the men and women who are privileged to serve in our troubled and uncertain times we are living in.

From within the unmistakable hand of God’s presence in the recent hurricanes, and from without the ongoing war put all of us to ponder what will be next. As we look the Biblical accounts we find comfort and consolation.

In 2 Chronicles 7:14 the promise of the Lord comes as a hand writing on the wall: “If my people which are called by my name shall humble themselves and pray, and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will forgive their iniquities and will heal their land.”

I don’t know what Jesus would say

Dear George:

Hello, hope you are doing good and sleeping well at night. It must be tough, what with American soldiers dying every single day in an unwinnable war, your entire top tier of Republican party machine advisors about to be under indictment, and with your approval ratings at the lowest level in the history of presidential approval polls.

Maybe you should pray to Jesus, the prince of peace. Sometimes I wonder how people can call themselves Christian and support war. Do you ever wonder about that Mr. Bush? Do you ever wonder what Jesus would say about the war in Iraq? I do. I believe he would say end the war now. What would he say about a man who led the nation into a war that has killed tens of thousands of innocent people for reasons that proved to be untrue?

I don’t know what Jesus would say but I do know I would sure hate to be standing in your shoes, Mr. Bush, come judgment day. Well, goodbye Mr. Bush. I know your job is hard. Maybe you should go relax on your ranch for another three months while your minions run around discrediting the character of grieving mothers who lost sons in the war in Iraq. Good luck Mr. Bush, the world is watching and so is the prince of peace.
