It seems that government wants to invade every part of our lives: our workplace, our religion, even our families. And now our debt! As a small businessman, I am appalled at the spending deficit, year after year. Don't our people in Congress know that even the interest on our national debt is a backbreaking load on our economy? Perhaps we have too many lawyers roaming the Hallowed Halls and too few responsible businessmen.
The awful specter of death overwhelmed me. Never again would I hear her bubbly laughter as she jumped into my lap to hug me. Never again would she delight us with her little-girl antics.

I consider the Bible to be the most practical book ever written. It teaches us how to live in a world that seems to consider honesty and integrity to be a fault. It teaches purity in a world where chastity is pictured as unnatural. It promotes self-sacrificial friendliness to a grasping, self-seeking world. It teaches us to live peaceably, and finally, it can prepare us for eternity.
