In God we trust

By Jim Andrews


Dear Editor:

I find it very difficult to accept the fact we have American citizens who are offended by the above title. Apparently they are deluded into believing the United States of America can be separated from God.

Never in the history of mankind has a handful of ordinary men created a system of government that is the envy of the entire world today.

The weakness of the infant nation was appalling. We had little or no real military forces, meager finances, and very limited manufacturing capacity. The declared enemy was the most powerful nation in the world at the time. I firmly believe, the only way this venture could succeed was by divine guidance.

No wonder our one dollar bill is engraved with the motto, "IN GOD WE TRUST."
