Feet are funny looking things. They stick out from the bottom of our legs. They get where we are going before we arrive. They have things on the toes called nails. Why are they called nails? Seems to me they should be called plates. You cannot nail anything with a toenail. To be honest, there really are no beautiful feet. Other parts of a person’s body can be beautiful, but not the feet. The irony is that we need the feet because without them we would have no balance and would topple over. They are the foundation on which we stand.
That is the same for our country. If we have no good foundation on which to function, we will topple over.

History has taught us that when there is no solid foundation for a country that country will fall. Many strong nations in the past were dominant and impressive, but they abandoned their principles and went a sad way. They shrank into virtual nothingness with little influence in the world. If the citizens in America do not wake up and abide by a sound foundation, the future of America is di
