Passover, a holiday of freedom

Until today, I've meant to but never blogged about Passover.

Remember this day, in which you came out of Egypt, out of the house of bondage, for by strength the hand of the LORD brought you out from this place.

While our Jewish friends celebrate Passover, we of other religions, or even no religion, who believe in true freedom can still appreciate it.

It is written that Pharaoh would not heed the Lord's call to "Let my people go," so God sent forth the ten plagues. Sometimes a people need a little help from above to attain freedom. Sometimes they need a lot.

Today, will it take a little help, or a lot? Will it take one plague, or ten, before those trying to rule us will give up? I can only pray that we can say these words and see them come to pass: "This year we are slaves. Next year we will be free people."

Speaking of those trying to rule us, Obama is the last on earth qualified to talk about people being "free from bondage and repression, and are able to live in peace."

"Gentlemen may cry, Peace, Peace-- but there is no peace. The war is actually begun!"
