Ladies and Gentlemen: Why the Survival of Our Republic Depends On the Revival Of Honor By Dr. Gina Loudon And Dr. Dathan Paterno
Book Review By: @DocJ4U
“Gone were the days we could sit in the church pews and pray for good leaders to lead. Gone were the coveted days where good parenting—raising up an army—seemed our godly duty to this country. Gone, once and for all, were the days when our vote seemed to matter. This was going to be epic—we could feel it. When we didn’t know what else to do, we dared to protest” (Loudon and Paterno; 2012, p.213)
For such a time as this, I wholeheartedly agree with the core premise of Ladies and Gentlemen. The anxiety, confusion, and concern on the faces of my patients constitute my professional belief and self evident conclusion: Most Americans are innately experiencing and feeling a sense of urgency. This sense of urgency is the result of the concerning and peculiar direction our Republic is headed. Something is terribly wrong in America. Some people have the ability to articulate these wrongs, some do not. Yet, collectively, they can all feel it. No one alive today can give us the exact thoughts and feelings of our founding Mothers and Fathers. However, I believe it is safe to say they would agree something drastic must be done to turn this ship around: America needs sudden and relentless reform. In Ladies and Gentlemen: Drs. Loudon and Paterno express their own personal call to arms and offer detailed solutions on how to turn this ship around while our nation teeters on the brink.
Ladies and Gentlemen is a personal call to each one of us. This book is a personal call to take advantage of our multiplatform, multimedia, informational age. The Drs. show us how to use the technologies we have been blessed with to be constructive. They offer up examples and solutions on how to use these technologies to turn the ship around. They show us how to express our rage and outrage, our fear and anxiety, and the self evident gut feeling that encompasses most Americans in a constructive manner. The personal call of Ladies and Gentlemen is bold and clearly articulated, similar to the original personal call in the Declaration of Independence.
Our founding Mothers and Fathers communicated to us a blueprint without losing their sense of well thought and considered opinions in their writings. They never lost themselves to mob rule, and they remained Ladies and Gentlemen.
In this clearly and considered book, the Drs. demonstrate how to use new informational platforms to express ourselves with the same consideration and clarity of our foremothers’ and forefathers’. How we exercise our God given right to freedom of speech in a polite yet effective manner. Ladies and Gentlemen shows us the who, what, when, why and how to use today’s outlets to join with those of the past and those of the present in addressing our grievances.
Much like our foremothers and forefathers, God is not left on the sideline. God is an active participant both inside of us and outside of us; giving us strength and just the right words to use even though we may not all be accomplished authors. The Spirit is there to cradle us when adverse opinions are expressed about our writings. It is the Spirit that gives us the strength and fortitude to continue the good fight. It is the Spirit that tells us that the opinions of ONE do matter. It reminds us of the ONE MAN who changed and is changing the world.
Ladies and Gentlemen, in expressing our God given rights we are active participants in creation and have an intrinsic and extrinsic duty to aid all of us in these troubled times, like our foremothers and forefathers did with their Declaration. I recommend this book to you as a way to join the restoration of America.
