    We rarely get a chance to see another country's editorial about the  USA .
    Read this excerpt from a Romanian Newspaper. The article was written by Mr. Cornel Nistorescu and published under the title 'C'ntarea Americii, meaning 'Ode To  America ') in the Romanian newspaper Evenimentulzilei 'The Daily Event' or 'News of the Day'



    ~An Ode to  America ~
    Why are Americans so united?  They would not resemble one another even if you painted them all one color!  They speak all the languages of the world and form an astonishing mixture of civilizations and religious
    beliefs

    On 9/ll, the American tragedy turned three hundred million people into a hand put on the heart.
    Nobody rushed to accuse the White House, the Army, or the Secret Service that they are only a bunch of losers. 
    Nobody rushed to empty their bank accounts. 
    Nobody rushed out onto the streets nearby to gape about 
    Instead the Americans volunteered to donate blood and to give a helping hand.


    After the first moments of panic, they raised their flag over the smoking ruins, putting on T-shirts, caps and ties in th e colors of the national flag. They placed flags on buildings and cars as if in every place and on every car a government official or the president was passing. On every occasion, they started singing: 'God Bless America !'

    I watched the live broadcast and rerun after rerun for hours listening to the story of the guy who went down one hundred floors with a woman in a wheelchair without knowing who she was, or of the Californian hockey player, who gave his life fighting with the terrorists and prevented the plane from hitting a target that could have killed other hundreds or thousands of people.

    How on earth were they able to respond united as one human being?  Imperceptibly, with every word and musical note, the memory of some turned into a modern myth of tragic heroes. And with every phone call, millions and millions of dollars were put into collection aimed at rewarding not a man or a family, but a spirit, which no money can buy.

    What on earth can unite the Americans in such way? 
    Their land?  Their history? Their economic Power?  Money? 
    I tried for hours to find an answer, humming songs and murmuring phrases with the risk of sounding commonplace, I thought things over, I reached but only one conclusion... Only freedom can work such miracles.
    Cornel Nistorescu 

    (This deserves to be passed around the internet forever.)  It took a person on the outside - looking in - to see what we  take for granted !   
    GOD BLESS AMERICA!!!


    my response to this::

    This consciousness of unity, he calls freedom, I call it freedom to be in the Christ Consciousness state of Being...the only thing it has to do with Jesus is that he was a Christed One...like all the rest of us can be should we choose by our free will to do so.

    To me it is not a religion, but a way of life, a way of thinking and acting, a way of "Being". To accept Jesus as one of the many that have shown the way to be a Christed One in the world: this is what I believe; to become the Word and the Work.

    Jesus showed the  ultimate way by sacrificing his physical life to "overcome the world"; the many others past and present, have shown varying degrees of the way to become a Christed One. We are all sons and daughters of the One God.
