Ok – so I have to vent for a minute.
Over the last several years I have watched this “Once Great Country” take an abrupt detour and begin heading down the, now infamous, Highway to Hell. Now, if you ask some of our younger generation, commonly known as “Generation iY”, they will say that we have hit a solid brick wall and crashed leaving a thousand dead bodies in the rubble. People Please. – Just stop.
I have said for years that this Country has become the United States of the Offended and we, as a whole, are more scared of hurting peoples’ feelings or upsetting our neighbor than doing the right thing. Now I know some of you have already stopped reading this article or have started to skip through looking for the highlights to make some snide comments or rebuttal but I am here to tell you there is a different side to this story that we need to focus on. It is not just all about you.
For One, This Country is still the Greatest Country in the World. We have our freedom, we have our choices, and we have our luxuries that we have grown so accustomed to and most often take for granted. We have also grown past being just, “the Black Race”, the “White Race” the “Hispanic Race”, etc., but we have now evolved into the “Human Race”. We all have so much mixed blood in us that there is no “Norm” anymore. We need to get over ourselves and start doing what is right.
Now I am going to take out the next 10% reading this and go on record stating that I am a Christian. I am not better than you but I am forgiven. I am also a Proud American. You see, there’s a difference, Most of the younger generation expects that they can live any way they choose and do not have to answer for anything or to anybody.
But I am here to tell you that your actions today will affect you tomorrow. We all have hopes and dreams, we all have inspirations and aspirations, we all want to love and to be loved, and we all can if we just stop, take a breath and look at the big picture.
People, it is 2016, and we have a new President. Oh No, the World is going to end. Get a life! Just because one man is elected to be in charge of it all by the people of this great Nation doesn’t mean that this is going to change what we are and who we are. We are living in a society where “life” does not hold anything of value to a large populous and they will not think twice about taking that life away. Just look at all of the abortions, murders, killings, crashes, neglect and abuse in this world today.
I have recently been told by some people in this country that they are “scared for their life”, that they “are being physically harmed” by what Mr. Trump has done. Come On people – Mr. Trump has not done anything to you. It is the ignorance of the American people which lead them to do these things. I cannot make you commit murder, I cannot make you rob, steal or cheat, you do that on your own. We all need to take responsibility for our own actions. Do not blame it on the environment in which you were raised or the conditions that you are currently in.
The embodiment of the United States of America as far as the administration is concerned, should be ran as a business. Now think about this for a minute, Mr. Donald J. Trump is a self-made Billionaire. His whole life he has bought, sold and created very successful empires throughout the entire world. Simply, he is success. I have no doubt that President Trump will make America Great Again whether that is your agenda or not. This is not a one sided deal, and to cite and old cliché, there is no “I” in Team. I love this Country and I love the people in it. Straight, Gay, Christian, Bisexual, Red, yellow, black and white, it does not matter to me. If we shed off all of our skin, we will all be the same. If you want to change the world – start in your own back yard.
God Bless America……….
