An American Tragedy
Sadly, since those days, the ego of the victor of that struggle for freedom has centralized against the citizens, and, laying aside the very reason the several States created the Union, became mired in an outward fight for political domination, slowly suspending the rights of it's very creators, bent on swallowing the parts to feed the whole. These States, unable to patrol their own borders have been left exposed to a myriad of evils. Can we now say that these colonies are the United States of America, each expressing their individualism and free will?
We have been terrorized in the past, and it has been said that studies of these events have provided warnings of what would come. Could it be that, in the midst of partisan politics and concerned with a negative media image, many of our leaders felt that prophesy too disturbing, and not wanting trouble, buried their heads in the sand?
Over 140 years ago, a nation was called to prayer by its president, during a time of severe sorrow. The date was Friday, 27 March 1863; that nation was the Confederate States of America.
"To this end I, Jefferson Davis, President of the Confederate State States of America, do issue this my proclamation, setting apart Friday, the 27th day of March, as a day of fasting, humiliation and prayer; and I do invite the people of the said States to repair on that day to their places of worship, and to join in prayer to Almighty God, that He will preciously restore to our beloved country, the blessing of peace and security. In faith whereof I have hereunto set my hand at the city of Richmond on the twenty-seventh day of February, in the year of our Lord one thousand eight hundred and sixty-three."

The cause of Freedom, Liberty and Godliness, so tenaciously held by the Southron Nation is no less honorable or just in these trying times as it was so many years ago. And as we now stand with our brothers and sisters to the North in their hour of trial, may we call for them to unite with us in a return to the fundamental principles of Constitutional law our fathers so unselfishly fought for us to inherit.
This cause is just. This cause is honorable. This cause is real. It should never be pre-empted
