    Default comprehension

    Dear teachers,

    Please read the sentence by Thomas Jefferson:

    I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just.

    I guess this sentence means that there is some evil in the country and God is going to punish it. Is that right?

    Looking forward to hearing from you.

    Thank you in advance.

    Jiang
