God's blessings have many different qualities, among which is peace of mind and soul. Most human beings need a place where, for a short time, they are truly "far from the madding crowd."
My wife and I have a second home (retirement) in Southeast Missouri which provides a spiritual redoubt. I pray that all Americans will be able to have some sort of option for this kind of place, now or later.
I know that since my retirement 15 years ago from the Southwestern Illinois Law Enforcement Commission I have been blessed with an Eden. May all people find a place to reflect and reject harm and evil.
