Thousand Foot Krutch
I love this band. I listen to them daily. Even though we are looking at another camera, we all look like we're alert for it being a fan signing and it's 11:30 p.m. on a Friday.

Stand Up Stand Up

Yes, we have running water, electricity, and food. But think about it. People don't just give us those things. We work hard, sometimes really hard, and earn money and buy them. We have to wake up everyday, get ready, go to work, show up on time, do what we're supposed to do, and not complain. We have to be friendly and helpful and supportive, but confident and determined. We have to work as a team. People who do that get a job and earn money and provide for themselves and their families.

Yes, we should help each other as human beings and brothers and sisters, but it's not just luck that we have running water, electricity, and food. Sometimes it is; some people are born into a family where someone's worked hard or done something to earn enough money to last forever, or what seems like forever. But most of us work hard, be faithful, do our duty, and go home to a warm (or cold, depending on the time of year) house and family. We need to stop glamorizing luck and realizing it's partial luck, mostly hard work.

Same thing as a country. People in America have had to work hard to be successful, it doesn't just come to us, it is putting our needs and desires into action - and on hold sometimes - and craving out something beautiful and powerful. We sacrifice, we get involved, we stand up. Our leaders care somewhat about the people they're serving, and that's why we are where we are. Pick people who will care about the masses. Success will arrive then. Be willing to stand up for what's right, no matter what - even if you're standing alone.

Praying you have faith, hope, and love always,
