Learn from past, America

Throughout the history of mankind, countries, kingdoms and empires have fallen over and over again from greed, immoral behavior, incest, homosexuality and a disregard for human life — be it war, mass murder, individual murder or abortion.

The Macedonian Empire, Egypt, Roman Empire, Greece, Persian Empire, Mongolian Empire, France and Germany are just a few to have followed this path. All rose to great power and fell.

Should we not heed the warnings of history and learn those lessons? Are we so eager to destroy ourselves? There is no debating history, which cannot be altered.

Someone higher, who transcends ethnicity, race, religion, gender or sexual preference, has determined right from wrong. As that someone higher also gave man a free will, so shall man decide his fate.
