so many people have forgotten what we are… what we were before we succumbed to the red scare the official the U.S motto was E. Pluribus Unum. Out of many one. The truth is America has changed from what is once was .We lost faith in ourselves and in each other when when JFK was assassinated and Camelot fell. We overreacted and have hated each other ever since the cold war. For differing opinions that is our birthright that so many have died and will continue to die for
The United States is not meant to be a country divided we became a country to be united against all others who would press upon us. In time we pushed harder than the world pushed on us and we saw all the wonder of the world unhindered. But now we have fallen. we no longer see what we once saw the beauty of a world now clouded.
The truth is that America is not a place, a select group of people or a country. America in truth is an ideal. A Idea that has endured because people believe.This very idea that people have sacrificed everything for .Once people did not care so much about religion in a place where religion and political values where meant to be forever separate. And now look where we are a country of half mad lunatics who are mad that lady liberty still opens her arms to those who need her.
Life, Liberty and the pursuit of happiness this is what our ancestors and the founding fathers fought to build. And now it feels like we live in a cardboard version next to the decaying remnant of once was. Uncaring politicians have poisoned us for so long in the pursuit of power. We cannot see that we need change for we in all our supposed glory are stagnating.
Our strength is bound not by our differences but by our similarities. From the entire world and its many people we managed to prove without a doubt that people can live in peace despite the numerous divides. That a life without living in constant fear is not just a dream but a possibility.
Now maybe I’m being optimistic beyond reason but that is okay. The time will come when someone else gets the spotlight, the play will continue ever onwards. Life will move on and so in turn shall we. May our mark on history be lasting and may we be remembered not just for our nation’s imperfections but also in what we have done right in this world of ours.
