A Promise of Hope
This may sound crazy coming from a guy who makes his living on television, but sometimes I yell at the T.V. when I here stuff like this.
“I got mad”
You probably would have to when you hear the insanity.. “It’s a religious war against the Muslims”, ..
see the flag burned.
“Burn Burn USA”
Burt Harris said enough. “I looked up and said "God Bless America", and I looked up and I knew what I had to do”.
She bought a Christian flag and hung it outside her Springhill home.
“In two days we had 87 names of people who would want one”
Then in all the new ways, Facebook, email, words spread.
“People said where did you get that, I want one”.
First it was the homeowners, then businesses.
“We want it out there” –You want it out there-Tell me why “Because we’re Christians”
Now they are all over town, more than 600 flags and not just in Springhill,-Taylor-Serepta-Cotton Valley
And no one is backing down.
“It would be the Christian Flag- what’s wrong with that”
“If someone is going to sue me for that, then bring me to court!-that’s all I can say, I live there anyway”
“It just shows the Christianity I have in my heart for the world”.
I love it when Christians ban together to show they're not just this this silent majority I keep hearing”.
Oh No, in Springhill they are not silent, but they sure are proud.
“I'm proud to see them out- Cherish'em”
So that flag is you-“Yes, I think so, represents what I believe”
“Amazing, pleasantly surprised and extremely gratified that one little idea, could snowball into something so wonderful”.
Reminds me of another good idea, this one started in the desert about 2000 years ago; a carpenter started this one ;it ended up spreading all over the world...a billion people still believe...nice when a good idea spreads...with a promise of hope I'm Rick Rowe.
