Today is a sad day for me; I know my sadness will last until I say something. I have, for so long, held in all my sadness but sitting outside in a warm late September day, I am finally going to talk to many someones*(everyone)
Why I am sad? Because so much sadness is going on in this world today, and I can no longer pretend to be happy when I am not.
I am sad and will always be, for those lost in another useless war and the veterans who come home, maimed, and missing their family, children they never saw, and all they held dear, to defend a country, who like all the others in this world, faces continuous disagreements resulting in a continuous war. I once thought World War II was the last war, but I was wrong.
I am sad for those who live in a never- ending poverty…children starving…facing one epidemic after another, with little or no relief in sight.
I am sad that all people are not born equal, and that religion, race, and nation, have a bearing on how they are treated.
I am sad for all of us who have lost loved ones, through sickness, war, pandemic, or tragedy, never to see or speak to their loved one again.
I am sad when I read of Americans, young and old, hurting other Americans, without just cause.
My tears flow for all of them, myself included.
. I have kept my faith through the years while Americans damage the very towns they live in; where politicians are more interested in winning, than helping their country grow; where rules are broken, and veterans mistreated during a pandemic and the elderly considered useless.
Yes, we donate; we help as best we can thru wonderful companies who take responsibility for us humans in need, but more must be done. WE ARE AMERICANS! WE LOVE OUR COUNTRY, ALL OF IT, AND IT’S PEOPLE WHO FOUGHT AND STILL FIGHT TO PROTECT ITS BELIEFS.
IT’S TIME TO STAND UP AMERICA—STOP THE PROTESTS-—WORK TOGETHER TO CREATE A SOLUTION,
THERE IS NO YOU, OR ME— THERE IS US! WE THE PEOPLE!
