The destiny of any nation is illuminated by the principles within. The strength of any nation is established in unity; for a nation divided against itself cannot stand.
A nation is only as strong as the practices within. If those practices are prone to tearing down, then a nation will crumble under the effect.
The threat to a nation is not from without, but from within. The strength to stand comes from principles and practices that build one upon another, whether it is a family, a community, a state or a nation.
