Political Pull – Psalm 23

Twelve years ago last week, President Bush addressed the nation in a speech which included a passage from Psalm 23: “Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I fear no evil for you are with me”.

As America reflects on the anniversary of the September 11, 2001 Islamic terrorist attacks, they might be wise to take heed of the words of Edmund Burke who stated: “those who don’t know history are destined to repeat it”. For America is facing the same forces that brought down the Roman Empire. In “America this Week” one man works tirelessly in his crusade of saving the nation. And in “Friend or Foe”, not one, but two groups find themselves in the hot seat as they battle one another for the national spotlight.
