Beneath all the blame shifting in our country, the truth is probable that each of us bears a piece of the blame for the mess we are in.

I now pray before you day and night for the people of Israel your servants, confessing the sins of the people of Israel, which we have sinned against you. Even I and my father’s house have sinned.  We have acted very corruptly against you and have not kept the commandments, the statutes , and the rules that you commanded your servant Moses. ~ Nehemiah 1:6-7
