Much of the country feels we are going through a civil war; it just hasn’t been formally declared yet, although many of us have said that the last four years have felt like a war. The current environment is so detrimental to our country that I fear for our wellbeing, mentally and physically.
If you ask the people whose homes and businesses have been destroyed, they would likely tell you how devastated they feel. Their entire lives may have been invested in starting their businesses. Sacrifices were made, economically and relationally. They thought they were in a great country, where they could thrive and reap the benefits of a free society. And then in one vicious attack, it was all taken away. Their hopes and dreams were tossed onto the ash heap. And if it felt like a war, they had no one to protect them, and often couldn’t protect themselves. Now they are trapped in a nightmare with little relief.
