“Let’s drive so far out of this misled town until our feet ache and our eyes drown.”
Have you ever wanted something so badly you would swear to watch the moon change a million times until you got it?
That’s the kind of passion I’ve been looking for. I rarely see people truly dedicated to something enough to break a sweat over these days. Whatever happen to the Martin Luther King Jr. and Susan B. Anthony’s of the world? They had a cause worth fighting for. But to say there aren’t causes worth fighting for to this day would be lie.
We are so wrapped up in our technology, our money, and our material objects that we forget how we got there. We read our history books. We take our quizzes. We pass or we fail, and we move on. Do we ever truly learn from our history? Or are we doomed to repeat it? These questions aren’t newly asked, nor will they soon be answered.
The moment we stop fighting for our civil rights. Our god given human rights, is the day we will regret ever choosing to live.
What have we to live for if not ourselves? We deserve love, happiness, and liberty. We have many trials ahead of us. But think of the beautiful outcomes we can achieve!
It took the United States 70 some odd years to give women the vote.
How long will it take to abandoned our discrimination against who marries who? Or who wants contraceptives. Or who needs health care?
Most of the world is rapidly starting on fire, and our country is yet to begin building a fire.
We are powerful in ways that most countries have never known, but I am truly sorry that we still deny our own citizens some of their god given rights.
I vow for no more oppression. I vow to support the people who live in this beautiful country. I vow that my mind will always run open and wide for this world to see.
God bless us all. We are needing to see the light in these dark times.
