This past fall, I submitted a speech to the VFW’s Voice of Democracy speech contest on the year’s theme “What Makes America Great.” I just recently found out how it fared, and it placed 4th in my state! Now that it’s out of the running for the national competition, I decided I would share it with y’all.
I’m not going to take the time to explain it or tell you what it’s about–I’ll let you listen to it for yourself–but I wanted to highlight the last point that I made: America is/was great because of her godly foundation. Very sadly, America has fallen away from some of her foundational principles and is now facing the consequences of taking God out of the picture. I’m only 15 and don’t really follow the news so I’m sure I don’t know the half of it, but what I do know is terrifying. By God’s grace America has seen revival in the past, and I believe He can do it again, so please join me in praying for our nation and taking a stand where He calls us to! He is the real reason America is great.
So anyway… here’s my speech 🙂 God bless the world, y’all.
