The Fight of Our Lives by William J. Bennett and Seth Leibsohn shows us how public opinion has changed since 9/11. Gone is the call to arms against terrorism. Political correctness now dictates that it isn't even spoken of in an official manner anymore. Not much is mentioned of radical Islam as we strive to be a country that embraces every religion.
To understand the issues we need to see why and how things have changed so we can know what to do in the future to keep the America we know and love. The authors show us what happened between 9/11 and now to make us a complacent people and why that is dangerous to our survival as a nation.
This book explains where our weaknesses are and how to get back into the fight before it's too late. The book starts with the tragedy of Fort Hood and the controversy surrounding Nidal Hasan. The authors try to awake the reader to the problems surrounding us. It is time to take action before another attack takes place on our country.
Sometimes as individuals we feel helpless to do anything that will help change what is going on at the national level. But we can do something. I can educate my children to know what our country was founded on and how our leaders in Washington and our state capitals were intended to govern. I can refuse to give in to political correctness and call terrorism and terrorists by those names. I can give my children something to believe in and live for so they won't fall away from their moral values.
This book has helped me see what has happened over the last 10 years and has given me the desire to see change.
I received a free copy of this book from Thomas Nelson publishers and have shared my honest opinion.
