In bewilderment

I have just joined a club called the “Damned American” club. I find that it is much safer to be a part of the majority instead of a minority group.

Through a long-lasting belief, I don’t believe that the blooming apple tree was put on this earth to learn in our senses to hate. Rather, it was given to us to enjoy its delicate and delicious essence, and we are too busy hating to keep its essence alive.

Wouldn’t it be wonderful to come back from star gazing to put our energies into a more fruitful experience of love instead of hate?

It sounds like a distant pipe dream with 100 years of war ahead without the definitions of dignity and love. It would be quite out of whack when mixed with other ingredients called hate.

We must all keep in mind that there stands in the harbor of New York the Statue of Liberty.

It does not mean disobedience to God, but instead it’s true definition is disobedience to tyranny.

This is a hard fact to swallow, and though it is a difficult choice to make for some, think of the Statue in reference to freedom as its one and only meaning.

It is the symbol for what this country is and the truth about its principles and what we have to lose if we think in generalities and not in the real truth of our choices.

Happy to be a citizen of the U.S.A.
