A camping we did go! Though it was blistering hot fun was had by all. We had to travel around a bit since even our tried and true camp site felt the sting of the drought. It was more like playing in the mud than the lake. I'd share pix with you but for some reason the site isn't letting me upload. I can tell you that the adults were doing their fair share of howling at the moon once the shots were being passed around. I got to laugh at the lightweights the next morning as they fell out of their tents grumbling about having to break camp. Now that was a picture!A camping we did go!

As a mother holds her new baby for the very first time, a tender smile pulls quietly at her lips. As she stares into the deep, unclouded eyes of her child, her chest warms with affection. Reflected in the untainted face of fresh life, is ineffable, hope.
As the young baby girl grows up, she notices how often people refer to her as “the country’s future.” It is not the title her mother beckons her with, or the name her father gently scolds her by. But for some reason, those three words are always uttered with terrible importance. “You are the country’s future.” The young girl does not understand the words, but senses their intent. She knows, instinctively, that she has been entrusted with something truly significant.
As the girl ages and her mind matures, she begins to understand. She begins to comprehend the world around her and the nature of her individual existent. She is a human being. And she is a citizen of the United States of America. Like all of today’s youth, she has the ability to impact the world. She has more power than anyone, for she has a voice. She represents a rising generation that has more influence than anyone in determining this country’s future. She has grown wise in the shadow of hardship, and has learned the pain and seriousness of global conflict. She has watched her mother cry while watching the Twin Towers fall, and felt absence at the dinner table in light of war. But like all generations previous, she has adapted and remained strong.
I am optimistic about our nation’s future, because I hold unfettered faith in the the human spirit. Though not tangible, it our spirit that has allowed this country to develop into what it is today. Strength. Loyalty. Persistence. The United States was established and remains grounded on these core values. Unwavering morals and impeccable principles have served us generously for over two hundred years. As long as this land belongs to the free and the brave, these ideals will never falter.
I am optimistic about our nation’s future, because that is who we are. We, as a people, have always looked forward and remained optimistic. We remember and respect our past, but do not wallow in it. We strive to improve and better ourselves, while keeping our minds and hearts open and impartial. We allow genuine inspiration into our lives freely, and utilize our skills any way we can.
I am optimistic about our nation’s futures, because our youth is capable and proud. We have seen the taut face of struggle and have versed ourselves in the American dream. With the guidance of our parents, grandparents, and guardians we have learned all that this country stands for. Though things change as decades pass, our people remain good and pure of heart.
I am optimistic about our nation’s future.... because I can always see hope in the face of a child.
Lord, I come thirsty. I come to drink, to receive. I receive your work on the cross and in your resurrection. My sins are pardoned, and my death is defeated. I receive your energy. Empowered by your Holy Spirit, I can do all things through Christ, who gives me strength. I receive your lordship. I belong to you. Nothing comes to me that hasn't passed through you. And I receive your love. Nothing can separate me from your love...Amen.
