The United States of America (USA)

July 4 is the Independent Day of the USA.  Happy Independence Day to the United States of America! I was reading a post written by a British, and America was referred to as “a sister to the Great Britain.” I was flabbergasted. This is to tell you that America is a GREAT country. A sister to a great country is also a great country. The US is great indeed, for it to be confirmed by the government of a nation that colonized her.

America is a very great country and truly independent country. The question I always ask myself is, “What made the United States be great?” I read some books and I found out that the founding fathers built her foundation on God, the rock, which is a natural and most dependable foundation for any building.

Foundation

Her foundation was built on God. Her sail is God. Is a clause like, “In God, we trust” strange to you? They truly did, and I strongly believe that high percentage of people in America still do today. The type of foundation determines the edifice that will be built on it, not otherwise. This is also true when it comes to building a country from the scratch like that of US. The stronger the foundation, the stronger the building, the greater the foundation, the greater the building!

In my own perspective, America loves God, they love people of God, and they love the things of God.  The founding fathers were wise to make God Almighty the foundation from the inception, the Constitution was built and developed based on God’s principles. That is why any mistake that is made in the building can easily be corrected. The whole building can even be demolished and rebuilt since the foundation is still intact.

It cannot be otherwise, many countries want to be great like the Great Britain, the Great America, the Great China, and other countries of the world (the G8, the G20, etc.) It would not be easy, a great building can never be built on a shallow and weak foundation. The foundation has to be re-visited. But do you know one thing, from my experience as a Civil Engineering graduate, it is not easy to work on a foundation, the best bet is to abandon the foundation, and to start another one.

Nigerian FlagIf the foundation is destroyed, the righteous have to forget about that foundation and start another one that is able to carry the great building they have in mind. When I worked at Covenant University in Lagos/Ogun State, Nigeria, I saw a very big foundation that was ignored, Bishop David Oyedepo told the professionals to abandon it and start on a new site because it is a very mighty building and it must have a recommended clearance from another mighty college building beside it.

FoundationThe higher or greater the building, the deeper the foundation has to be. For a bungalow, you can excavate 600mm, but when it is a 2-storey building, it has to be the minimum of 1000mm, depending on the type of soil.

Happy independence to the great America!

  1. Your post made me smile! Thank you for your kind words about my native land. You may be interested in something I read earlier today. It was from the last letter every written by Thomas Jefferson, the author of our Declaration of Independence.

    The Declaration of Independence reads, in part: “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed.”

    Jefferson’s last letter (to the mayor of Washington DC) concluded:

    “may it be to the world what I believe it will be, (to some parts sooner, to others later, but finally to all) the Signal of arousing men to burst the chains, under which Monkish ignorance and superstition had persuaded them to bind themselves, and to assume the blessings & security of self government. the form which we have substituted restores the free right to the unbounded exercise of reason and freedom of opinion.

    “all eyes are opened, or opening to the rights of man. the general spread of the light of science has already laid open to every view the palpable truth that the mass of mankind has not been born, with saddles on their backs, nor a favored few booted and spurred, ready to ride them legitimately by the grace of god. these are grounds of hope for others. for ourselves let the annual return of this day, for ever refresh our recollections of these rights and an undiminished devotion to them.”

    And THAT is what American Independence Day is all about!

    1. Thanks for intimating me about the information from this letter of Thomas Jefferson: “The last letter every written by Thomas Jefferson, the author of our Declaration of Independence.” Thanks a lot, thanks for reading, and thanks for commenting. Happy birthday to the Great America. I love America, not because I want to live there, but because of positive impacts to many nations of the world.

      Please, make sure you use one of the codes for that AudioBook, and enjoy, it is very motivational, and let me know your thought in form of a review to help me in the next Volume.
