In a world where our children are being fed the poison of lies from the liberal control school system, there emerges a young man who has the courage of his convictions and a determintation to bring the message of his faith in Christ despite the consequences. Brooks Hamby is a young man who is a cut above most and who is willing to stand and fight for the truth of Christ rather than conforming to the ways of the world. I commend this young man and I pray he becomes all that God intends for him to be.
Brooks Hamby seems to be a pretty successful student — mock-trial star, cross-country runner,U.S. Senate page and high school salutatorian — yet his high school administration reportedlyrefused to allow him to speak openly about his faith at his graduation.
“In coming before you today, I presented three drafts of my speech, all of them denied on accountof my desire to share with you my personal thoughts and inspiration to you: my Christian faith,” Hamby said. “In life, you will be told, ‘No.’ In life you will be told to do things that you have no desire to do. In life, you will be asked to do things that violate your conscience and desire to do what is right.”
As the crowd started to murmur, Hamby gave his advice: “No man or woman has ever truly succeeded or been fulfilled on the account of living for others and not standing on what they knew in their heart was right or good.”
He then quoted from “the biggest best-selling book of all-time in history” — the Bible.

I seek first the kingdom of Christ because everything else in this world is perishing. All that I have is from God who is always faithful. I have worked hard all my life and will continue as long as God lends me breath. The mistakes and bad judgments I made in my life all stemmed from me trying to work things out by myself. I have learned the hard way that the victory over all of my problems and the answers to all of my desires lie solely in my Savior, Jesus Christ.
It is now my desire to share the words that God gives me to encourage and give hope to others who need the strength that only faith in Christ can give.
