[Poem] The Patriotic Beatitudes

Blessed are the immigrants and descendants of immigrants: for theirs is the American Dream.

Blessed are the patriots: for they shall check the government.

Blessed are the press: for they shall witness the truth.

Blessed are the innovators: for they shall empower the people.

Blessed are the liberators: for they shall be liberated.

Blessed are they that toil: for they shall see the fruits of their labor.

Blessed are the activists: for they shall be called children of the American Revolution.

Blessed are the marginalized: for theirs is the kingdom of Heaven.
