A Reminder…

We all have our crosses in life to bear.

Some of us have heavier ones.

We all come from different backgrounds and environments.

We all have different mindsets, outlooks, and situations.

When it comes down to it, we are all Human beings, with the capacity to love, and to give love.

If we forget this, we forget our common humanity.

In this time of confusion, malady, and strife; in a time where our nation seems to be teetering on the edge of irrelevance, we must choose our higher selves.

We cannot be driven by ego, madness, and revenge.

We cannot be driven by chicanery, guile, and self-preservation.

Whether we know it or not, from sea to shining sea, this beacon of freedom cannot be taken for granted.

We cannot be complacent in our attempt to keep this nation strong.

We must not give ourselves over to fear and recrimination, for if we do, the centre will not hold.

Our nation can be great again, but not for the cause of a strongman.

Our nation can be reborn, but not of collectivism and selfishness.

We the People, all of us, in common cause, working against those who have taken our freedoms from us, WE can restore the Constitution and this nation.

We must be the Men and Women that our Founders envisioned; articulate, bright, educated, intelligent, and strong.

We can do these things if we rely upon each others individualism and virtue to show us the way.

We can do this with belief in the God who gave us our freedoms that are inalienable, and the God who gave us the free will to make our own choices.

May God bless you, and may He continue to bless the United States of America.
