Guest Column
Faith Is Needed In 2020

Judge Rembert
Guest Columnist


She was sitting on my screened porch...
The sun was shining...
The birds were eating...
Eating seeds and singing in the trees...
Mr. Mockingbird was fussing...
The blueberries were calling to be eaten...
The flowers were many colors...
Many colors and many shapes...
Even many smells...
All was normal in her yard...



1 - Court Street Grill 300

Her yard was her world...
Well her yard and her porch...
Porch with swings...
Swings and chairs...
Tables and more potted flowers...

There was even coffee in her coffee cup...
But her brain was not filled with joy...
Where were her happy thoughts...
Where were her happy memories...
What memories were being built now...
Why had dark thoughts invaded her head...
Who put them there...

She was raised to love her country...
She was raised to love her flag...
She was raised to think...
Think that they were important...
Important and needed by all...
Where had that idea gone in 2020...
Who took that idea away from so many...
Many people who...
Who were so angry...

She tried to understand...
Understand the hate that was growing...
Growing in so many hearts...
She tried to wash the dark thoughts...
Thoughts of their anger from her thoughts...
She was not angry at anyone...
Why had all those dark feelings been put...
Put in her head...

Now America had always been home to her...
America had never been perfect...
But America has always attempted...
Attempted to be better...
People came to America to shine...
Shine in they our sunshine...
People from all countries have come...
Come and succeeded...
They came and made America their home...

There is so much good in this world...
No this world is not perfect...
It was not invented to be perfect...
But it is up to each of us to improve...
Improve our small part of the world...
We can pick up trash...
We can help a friend or a stranger...
We can truly care...
It is up to each of us...

She will try to put warm friendly though...
Thoughts back into my head...
She will get out of her swing...
Water her flowers...
Feed her birds…
Be kind to her neighbors...
Love her family...
Fly her American flag...

She must have faith...
Faith is a powerful brain cleaner...
Faith is good for the heart as well...
