Our world is less safe today than it has been in a very long time and things appear to have gotten worse this summer.

Take a hard look at events around the nation and our world only to see we're facing dangers of many fronts. It used to be that our dangers were limited to extreme heat, flooding, lightning strikes...etc.

At home: We have seen unprecedented dangers near the US border and in the Midwest region. Whopping weather woes, including fires and a severe drought. Our political system appears to be broken.

Abroad: The Russians continue to cause tensions, Africa's Ebola outbreak and in Middle East, those killings in Gaza, while a news breed of terrorists are now speaking perfect English, therefore ISIS' apocalyptic vision is an even greater threat than any previous terrorist groups.

Some people around the globe are beginning to fear the end of the world is near. And who can blame folks for wondering, when we see what is happening all around. Wars, famine, natural disasters, a rapid increase in technology is poisoning the air and our waters as birds and fish keep dying in huge numbers.
