Unifying the United States
I’ve seen a post going around Facebook recently saying people miss the America of 9/12/01, where we came together as a nation. It didn’t matter who was Republican or who was Democrat, if you were black or white. Our grieving and shock united us. We were in so much disbelief - and our citizens united as one to mourn such a huge loss, love on each other, and lend a helping hand.
I miss that, too. I often wonder if we’ll ever be united again. I hope it doesn’t take another terrorist attack to make us so.
Uniting to protect each other from Covid is an easy way to show each other love, especially our fellow countrymen who are at an increased risk.
Uniting with our brothers and sisters who are being denied basic human rights based on the color of their skin and trying to understand their POV is a beautiful way to love our neighbors.
Uniting with police officers who do good in our communities every day would show the world that we know there are some bad apples but we won’t allow it to spoil the bunch.
Uniting with our neighbors who are struggling to make ends meet, and lending a helping hand - how loving our country would be!
Uniting with our LGBTQ folks would lower the suicide rate significantly. Love is love is love.
Uniting against election interference is another way to show the world we are a country that values our ideals and they can’t mess with the good old U. S. of A. We cannot allow another country to take our democratic principles from us.
If we would unite with each other, despite our differences, this country would be the powerhouse it was on 9/12/01.
But we aren’t united. We are fractured down the middle. We are still seeing red and blue or black and white, when there are all kinds of colors in between. All the colors of the rainbow exist in this great country of ours. I wish that every American could see it, and love it.
We were founded on timeless principles.
We believe in the freedom of speech, the freedom of and from religion, and due process.
We believe in honor, courage, integrity, respect, responsibility, life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. These beliefs are what make the United States of America the best country in the world. I wouldn't want to live anywhere else.
There will always be someone that is full of hate for the United States. We cannot allow that hatred to rule out the love and respect we have for each other.
After all, the belief that all men are created equal is our founding principle. The understatement of 2020 is that our country has had troubles with equality - I hope we continue to work together to create a more perfect union.
