I don't want to be an American idiot

I'm constantly aware that humanity is broken, that I'm broken, that this world is one of darkness with precious little light present. A squalid, decedent, promiscuous world. It sucks to be part of this, but that's how it is, I'll do the best to spread what little light there is. Because, that light can change the darkness.

Speaking of change, how about Obama? No, I don't have the current-events knowledge to make a political commentary. That really isn't my thing anyway. But it makes me ashamed to be an American idiot, living in a country that would elect an agenda like that. Perhaps we didn't realize that we were electing more than a personality, we were electing a platform, and an ugly one.

I like to pretend that I'm not afraid of the dark. But I am, I'm afraid of the darkness within myself. The outside darkness was created by God, there was morning and evening the first day, and God called it good. But the darkness within me, I put that there, and that monster frightens me. I wish there was more light.

"Shine, Jesus, Shine. Fill this land with the Father's glory. Blaze spirit, blaze. Set our hearts on fire. Flow, river, flow. Fill the nations with grace and mercy. Send forth your word, Lord, and let there be light."
