SARAH, LLOYD AND ME—PARTICIPATING IN THIS GREAT AWAKENING

That would be Sarah Palin, My unhyphenated black brother, Lloyd Marcus and me, Richard Johnson. We three, and many, are participating in a Great Awakening from on High in America. What about you?

Today we feature two articles from my brother Lloyd, Liberal vs Conservative: A Spiritual Battle and Gunfight At DC Corral: Palin vs Obama.  They follow, but first a quick explanation and the text of my June 5th DAILY CALL.

Governor Palin has found a rock to stand on as a leader for God in this Great Awakening. It shows up in the One Nation tour and her 2010 book, America by Heart. Lloyd and I independently saw an unspoken purpose as the One Nation tour unfolded. Sunday, may 5th, While Lloyd posted the pieces to follow, I posted WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO FUNDAMENTALLY RESTORE AMERICA? and sent this email DAILY CALL: 

DAILY CALL June 5, 2012 -THE CALL-- NEDA AGHA SOLTAN; SARAH PALIN

Greetings fellow Patriots,

“We The People”

~A force to turn the Democrats out and turn the Republicans inside out!  

~Showing up for the hard work and to restore America —to the glory of God!

 ~“We don’t believe in shared sacrifice, We believe in shared opportunity!”

THE CALL

Liberty Lives! Do you hear the CALL?

(The Face of Liberty!)

Remember, in the wake of the fraudulent and stolen election in Iran, the people rose up, peacefully demonstrating; calling for honest elections. They had every right to expect moral support from the United States. Obama reacted as I expected: he stood with the Ayatollahs and Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. You will recall many who stood for honesty in the election and freedom were killed, imprisoned and, if female, raped. For me and many, a young woman, just 16, became a symbol for Liberty that transcended Iran. Her name was, Neda Agha Soltan. My friend, Amil Imani has an image of a bronze bust of Neda titled “Angel of Freedom” at his Web Site,  Freedom of Iran.

She was the inspiration for the title of these messages, DAILY CALL. Here is what I wrote in June of 2009: 

Liberty lives. Perhaps many American voters slept. The Obama Administration does not speak of Liberty. But Liberty is the Light that, according to Lincoln, was the essence of America’s conception. That light of Liberty burns today in America and in hearts across the world. Today it has a face. The face of an innocent sweet 16 year old who stood up against tyranny and for Liberty and was murdered by the instruments of the tyrants. Perhaps she was born for this purpose. Take a look.

As we follow the One Nation tour at The Patriot’s Trumpet, I check out Governor Palin’s daily posts at Sarahpac. Just days short of two years from the murder of Neda, Sarah heard The Call at Gettysburg. Here it is:

The Call at Gettysburg

Posted on May 31, 2011

When I first visited Gettysburg years ago, I was overwhelmed with the sense of sacrifice made to secure our union, but my most recent visit this morning was even more significant as subsequent visits allow reflection on the state of our union today. Striking to me is how ready and willing troops and civilians were in 1863 to lay their lives on the line. Are we as ready and willing to accept the call for sacrifice today in order to keep our union secure?

Hopefully the kids on school field trips whom we met this morning grasped the poignant irony at the site we toured together: that such a beautiful stretch of the Pennsylvania countryside should have been the site of the bloodiest battle in the Civil War. But perhaps it’s fitting that such a sacred place should be so beautiful now in order to commemorate the terrible sacrifices made to bring about, in the words of Lincoln’s famous address, “a new birth of freedom.”

But this “new birth of freedom” wasn’t fully realized by the generation that paid the price for it. Over 100 years after the battle, Martin Luther King, Jr. stood on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial and declared, “Now is the time to make justice a reality for all of God’s children.” It took the struggle for Civil Rights to truly complete what Lincoln called “the unfinished work” for which the heroes of Gettysburg “gave the last full measure of devotion.”

Today, when we speak of “fundamentally restoring all that is good in America,” we remember the debt of gratitude we owe to those who sacrificed to create and preserve our union. From the Civil War to the struggle for Civil Rights, generations of Americans have made great sacrifices necessary to pass on to us this great gift of freedom. It’s our duty to them to preserve it, cherish it, and pass it on to our children, so “that these dead shall not have died in vain…and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.”

When duty calls, are we willing to answer today? Please remember that freedom isn’t free – the price paid for our liberty has been great.

The reminders of the past costs are seen at Gettysburg. The way forward in protecting our unified body is encapsulated in Lincoln’s 2nd inaugural address: “…with firmness in the right as God gives us to see the right, let us strive on to finish the work we are in, to bind up the nation’s wounds.”

– Sarah Palin

Are you listening; do you hear the call? Then go to my post today. Thank you.
