My Thoughts ~ I write these words with a heavy heart for the people of our Great Country, the United States of America. Maybe you agree, maybe you disagree, maybe my words will make you think a little differently ~ these are my thoughts:
So much negativity and drama going on around us in this World and within our own Country. It deeply saddens me, upsets me and disappoints me in many ways but yet I cannot live my Life with negativity and hatred, I cannot live in fear and I just cannot let it consume me. Yet, it saddens me greatly at how it is affecting so many who don’t realize it and who thrive on the negativity and continue to push segregation from within……we are ALL Human Beings none of us is better than the other!!
I wish more people could learn to agree to disagree and yet still get along. What has happened in the PAST is in the Past and there’s nothing anyone can do to change it, it’s our History. You have to learn from it and move forward and attempt to make things better for yourself and those around you!! Dwelling on the negatives of yesterday eats at your soul and draws more negative energy rather than producing positives. Destroying parts of History and Separating ourselves from within is such a sad negative.
I completely agree that we ALL have the right to Freedom of Speech but yet when it comes to Patriotism and Respect I feel it trumps it. There’s a time and a place for it, a positive and constructive way to do it……I would never sit down in a Court of Law when asked to rise as the judge enters, I would never stay sitting down while others stand for the Canadian Anthem or any other Country out of respect let alone my OWN County!!! Out of knowing and understanding a small fraction of our History, the Sacrifices and the Meanings behind why these have been traditions for so long, for knowing that many have made and still DO make sacrifices and that so many have and still are giving the ultimate sacrifice every day. These Sacrifices allow us to continue to have our Freedoms, the Freedoms in which we still have today that many others around the World do not.
We ALL have a Heart, we ALL Bleed Red. Our ethnicity, our skin color, our religious beliefs, what our ancestors did, what our parents did, what we ourselves have done in the past and who we voted for or support shouldn’t matter. We are ALL the same on the inside. We need to learn to get along just as we teach our kids to do with their siblings and others at school, as we even teach our dogs to get along with other dogs and cats…..why should we accept anything less from ourselves?!?! SHAME on us all for allowing this to happen!!
In the end, in the final end we ALL die the same….our Hearts stop beating and we go cold….we go cold as our souls leave our bodies…..how does this NOT prove that we are all the same, that we are indeed equals?!?! Stop punishing each other because of our differences and because of what happened years ago….
We should be Uniting and becoming stronger as a Nation instead of this pissing match of who’s better than whom or who’s ancestors had it worse so therefore deserve more and so on…… We are ALL human beings, we are all equals and if we started acting like equals instead of dividing ourselves like grade schoolers afraid of getting “Cooties” from the other girls or boys we would become a much stronger and happier America once again. UNITED States of America needs to stay “United”.
If you were in a car crash right in front of me and you needed help I would NOT sit idle by and just watch because YOU were of a different color or because you supported a different candidate or because you had different religious beliefs or because you were a person who Serves & Protects or even because you were a prison inmate on a transport bus who may have murdered someone!! I would rush to your side and still help you as best I could no matter what because I have a heart, just like you do!!! I believe we are ALL equals and deserve to be treated with Kindness, Compassion & Love no matter what the circumstances just as so many Men & Women of our Great Country do every single day in many varying capacities!!! We don’t have to be born here, we don’t have to have the same religious or political beliefs, we don’t have to have the same skin color or same ancestry DNA to be an American, that’s what makes this Country so Great!
I am NOT writing this to start a debate or go back and forth with anyone…..this is NOT intended to start ANY arguments about different beliefs and ways of thinking. This is MY Freedom of Speech and my thought as of late. So Please, out of respect if you wish to leave a negative comment, wish to debate or if I simply pissed you off and you want to let me know it…..Please DON’T do it on here. Yes, you too have Freedom of Speech rights, I’m simply requesting you address your grievances with me directly and elsewhere. Thank You…. Thanks for Reading my Thoughts……Robin Robinson ~ a Proud American Military Mom 8-23-17
