Dear friends and family. Thanks for putting up with all my posts over the last few months. What you have been reading is mostly what I see taking place in the first part of my book.
I am not losing it, and I am not dying anytime soon. ha-ha If you read below you will get a better idea of where I am going with it all. I’m just writing it as I go, so I am sure there will be posts that seem out of place. Hopefully I will be able to tie it all together at some point.
How we got here. (Part I)
Zach, I have been telling you all my bad mistakes and regrets for a reason. I am not the only one out there who has done stupid things. Unfortunately I and others like me are the reason we are in trouble now. If we are going to have any chance to be the nation we are capable of, you and your friends are going to have to help. We put you in a heck of a mess for your future, and we don’t have enough role models for you to emulate. I am going to start off by helping you see how we got here.
(Insert I’m sorry & lessons learned posts, etc)
What is wrong with our great nation (Part II)
Hopefully the first part of this book gave you a clear picture of the type of person your dad used to be. I want you to understand that I am far from alone. I hope you are seeing me lead by example as I try to become a better person. I am very fortunate to have some wonderful family and friends. I don’t know where I would be without them. Many people don’t have the love surrounding them like we do.
Next, let’s talk about what I see as wrong with America. It is important for you to know what we are up against. I’ll go through current events and teach you how things could be done differently. I’ll show you how God is being removed from our country and how young people are more confused than ever about their faith. We will discuss our political leaders and the debt we are leaving you with.
(Insert bad news, state of country, leadership, etc posts)
Ideas for changing the game. (Part III)
You know what I’ve done to help get us in this mess. You have read my mistakes and lessons learned. You should also have a good understanding of the future you face if things remain the same.
Let’s talk about how I think we can change things for the better! I am going to call on all the people in my generation for help. We will also have the support of our older generations, as a lot of what I have to tell you I learned from people like your grandparents. You will need to help me reach out to your generation for help as well.
(Start writing/posting about pride, leadership, hope, caring, faith, government ideas, any other ideas about how to start turning this thing around.)
