Many generations will pass between the time I write this and the day you read it. I have no way of knowing what your life will be like, where you may be living, or what conditions you may be living under. I don’t know if you will be living in freedom, under tyranny, or somewhere in between. I don’t know if the great American patriotic songs (two are included here) are a part of your life or a thing of the past. I don’t know if you will be freely worshiping God or having to hide to do so.
I don’t know if this will find you living in the land of the free and the home of the brave, or under a system of one world government which has long since discarded the great documents of freedom penned by the founding fathers of America. Will you even be aware that there were such things as the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution or the Emancipation Proclamation? Will you be told of the sacrifices made by men and women to defend and preserve the life and liberty we today hold dear?
The sands of history may have buried many of these things, but it is important that you know about them. It is important that you know your true heritage. Indeed, the history of my day may have been revised beyond recognition by the agents of change who are at work, even as I write this. It has been said that those who fail to learn the lessons of history and benefit from the mistakes of the past are doomed to repeat them. I pray this finds you living in freedom in a land called America. But if it doesn’t, I want you to know and understand what happened. I want you to know and understand how evil can destroy a great nation, little by little, if good men remain silent.
When the final chapter is written in the history of mankind, it is my prayer that a book called the Bible will still be in your hands and you will have loved and lived the wisdom it contains. A nation can be destroyed, lives can be forfeited, but as long as you have and hold to the eternal word of God you can never be defeated. So draw near and listen, my children, while I tell you the story of a land called America.
