Accolades to British Prime Minister Theresa May after the Westminster attack on March 22. She is a class act with a firm resolute about how her country will respond to terror.
“We will move forward together. Never giving in to terror. And never allowing the voices of hate and evil to drive us apart.”
And isn’t that all terror can do anyway is to divide a country? Because to divide is to conquer, at least that is how they view it. But what could happen if the countries under attack from terror come together? Not only the leaders, but the people. We are the ones who have the eyes, and the ears on the streets of our countries. We are the ones who can prepare and be aware when faced with an attack, to counter and defeat this evil! There are around 184,000 terrorists world-wide, and we have 325,838,705 Americans, 64,938,716 French, and 65,511,098 Great Britain citizens.

As Christians, God has given us some strong promises concerning our enemies. We need to know them, to pray them, and to follow God’s will. Do you not think that by standing with God, any evil can be defeated? I do.
God tells us, “no weapon forged against you will prevail, and you will refute every tongue that accuses you. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and this is their vindication from me,” declares the LORD. Isaiah 54:17
“For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.” 2 Timothy 1:7
If we read God words and believe God’s words, change will happen!
Another impressive statement by British Prime Minister Theresa May, which I feel is a truthful representation of the attack.
“The location of this attack was no accident. The terrorists chose to strike at the heart of our Capital City, where people of all nationalities, religions and cultures come together to celebrate the values of liberty, democracy and freedom of speech. These streets of Westminster – home to the world’s oldest Parliament – are engrained with a spirit of freedom that echoes in some of the furthest corners of the globe. And the values our Parliament represents – democracy, freedom, human rights, the rule of law – command the admiration and respect of free people everywhere. That is why it is a target for those who reject those values. But let me make it clear today, as I have had cause to do before: any attempt to defeat those values through violence and terror is doomed to failure.”
Democracy, freedom, human rights and the rule of law are the values which America was established. We have come too far and fight hard every day to maintain theses values, to allow a spirit of terror defeat us!
Remember fighting terrorism is first being alert of your surroundings and reporting anything which looks out-of-place. Even if it turns out to be a goose chase, because one of those times the person or situation might be the real deal.
God Bless You!
God Bless Great Britain!
God Bless America!
