THE FRIENDS OF A MAN saw he was in poor health and that something serious must be wrong. The man, however, reasoned that it was all due to merely a lack of sleep, improper eating habits or possibly a case of emotional depression. When his condition did not improve, the man was strongly urged to contact a doctor. After a routine examination, the physician recommended that specialists in internal problems be consulted. The patient did, and the later diagnosis was a frightening one: cancer.
The disease was beginning to literally eat away the innards of the sick man. Drastic remedial measures were in order if he were to be made well. Accepting the conclusions of the doctors, the cancer victim agreed to undergo treatment on a large area of his digestive system. By recognizing his sickness and by cooperating with his healers, the man was saved. It took much effort and pain, but the dreadful disease was defeated. There is a similarity to be drawn between this sick man and present-day America. Many who respect and honour it see the United States is in extremely bad health. Symptoms of the nation’s illness are to be noted in many social and economic ways. It is to America’s credit that had most any other country suffered as the U.S. the other country would have been totally destroyed by now. America was blessed with a great foundation of strength and endurance. Considering the tremendous and lengthy attack that America’s enemy has carried on against it, one cannot be but impressed with these attributes.
