I received a comment from a reader a few minutes ago and his well thought words are the inspiration for this posting. He said the present administration is pitting all of us against each other. Gays against straight, Blacks against Whites, Rich against Poor, Progressives against Conservatives, Men against Women, etc, etc! I realized that I had fallen into the same trap and it made me angry with myself! History has taught us, although we continue to NOT learn from that powerful teacher, that any entity, especially a nation as diverse as ours will not stand, will not SURVIVE, if it is divided against itself! America is falling apart from within! We are fighting each other!! The fight we have is with those that want to destroy our country, not with our countrymen!
I believe that we MUSt stop our internal fighting, bickering, and finger pointing. Yes, we have differences, but those differences are what makes us strong! We must learn, IMMEDIATELY, to capitalize on our strengths and to totally disregard our differences. If a Female is a capable warrior, manager, pilot, scientist, let her excel for the well being of our Republic. The same applies to anyone who wants to join the cause. Let the bring their knowledge, Abilities, skills, habits, and desires to defend the Republic. We are ALL Americans and we should treat each other in that manner.
I am not just saying this. The words of that reader really struck me. I vow, right now, to live by the principals that I just wrote. If you are FOR the Republic, support the Constitution, and want to see us prosper, I extend my hand in friendship, regardless of our differences. Welcome aboard! If you do not choose to be an American watch out. You are not my friend. It's that simple.
