We live in a world that has seemingly gone mad, a place where animal lives are worth more than a human toddler apparently, a place where the police are vilified by not only the populace but by sports writers, celebrities and politicians.
Our choices for the leader of our country for the next 4 to 8 years are abysmal at best, terrifying at worst. All of them. ALL.
I fully support the military, I have said it before, a member of my family has been in the United States of America’s military since its inception. Throughout the history of this country we have been there. From the Revolutionary war until now, including now.
I am so proud to come from a people that support this country, the one our ancestor chose to come to. It is incredible to me that people are not supportive. Why do you think you enjoy the freedoms we have? The very freedoms are under attack right now.
Freedom of Religion is a big one, freedom of speech is another, the right to bear arms, these are rights.
We’re focusing on the wrong things people, while people are worried about where to pee, take a good look at what is being chipped away from your rights.
While people are vilifying the police, what is being stolen from your neighborhoods?
While people are putting down the military, what freedoms are slowly eroding in this country?
You can call me what you want, I am a proud American who waves the flag, I am a proud supporter of the police department, I am a proud Christian who reads her bible.
I am someone that follows Jesus and took to heart when he said three things will last forever: faith, hope and love and the greatest of these is love.
I can love my fellow man without agreeing with everything that comes out of their mouths. The same way they can love me without agreeing with every single thing that comes out of my mouth.
I have many friends that do not share the same politics, religion or eating habits that I do. In some cultures, eating habits are important.
However, we remain friends, because core friendship is not based on sameness, if it were I would have a lot fewer friends.
So, in conclusion, support the people that have vowed to protect us. Yes, I know not all of them are the scions of valor that we would want them to be, but the majority are.
oh BTW I do have a direct email to this blog at firstname.lastname@example.org, if you have any questions about this or any other entry I will be happy to answer.
