Normal Society is build on a virtuous foundation and that it’s time for citizens and residents of PG County to revive that tradition.
The state and local government can’t pass a law to make people virtuous. It’s up to churches, schools and parents to teach virtue.
We have had chaos, across board, in the superintendency, in governance of our schools, in public life and in families because we have lost the underpinnings of virtue of goodness. In this regard, we understand that many county workers with strong connections with previous county Executive Jack Johnson are still in place and some of the old ways of doing business is still intact, nothing changed in some places. We must change that culture! The cases in Federal court preparing for the jury trial speaks out for themselves. (Read the orders here ~~> Tracy Allison – Order, jon everhart order and Ruth Johnson) The only way to avoid these kind of damages in the future is for people to work together in an atmosphere of respect in every aspect of PG County and especially the schools.
PG County needs to revive the hope that springs eternal from the transcendent teachings of a humble carpenter who died upon a cross. Government can supply bread, but it cannot bend a broken spirit. Government can build a homeless shelter, but it cannot force anyone to assist their neighbor or the homeless youth. We can’t do enough through government, we just have to have a virtuous people.
The wise saying that we should separate, discrimination and religion from politics is not about keeping racist and religious people out of government, it’s about keeping the government out of racism and religion. No government, no law can force people to be virtuous. Our churches, our schools, you, parents, all of us together have to fill that void. This isn’t the norm now and we have hope the new county CEO will deliver with all our help.
If it’s popular to be a people to lack virtue, if what’s great on TV, if what you see every day around you, what has become popular, what has become the norm, is a Godless society with no moral underpinnings, it is our job to not conform. It is our job to be non-conformist. Another way of putting this is we must do something our world often tells us not to do: we must seek God. For our redemption and salvation, for our county’s revival, it depends on rediscovering that synthesis between freedom and tradition.
