America is falling, is falling, and violence covers the land like a flood. Let us cry for this once great land, because a day of reckoning is at hand. As I was reflecting on the nightmarish events of the past several days, a line from a song from one of my favorite bands of all-time kept coming to mind, and I have made that line the title of this article. We are truly a fallen people, and we definitely live in a broken land. The death of George Floyd is evidence of how far we have fallen, the police brutality that has gone on for way too many years is evidence of how far we have fallen, and the out of control rioting and looting that we have been witnessing day after day is evidence of how far we have fallen. Of course the truth is that just about every form of evil that you can possibly imagine has been exploding in our society in recent years, and the American people just keep going back for more. We have had an insatiable appetite for wickedness, and now we are reaping what we have sown.
