I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America and to the Republic for which it stands one nation, under God Indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.
Today is July 4, 2020. A day that we celebrate the Independence of the United States of America. You know, as each day goes by, we are living in the nightmare of COVID-19, social distancing, racial inequalities, job losses and a failing economy. I began soul searching for what our country could be. We are the United States of America, not the Divided States of America. Liberty and Justice for all…not just a few!
I know I have a lot of friends and followers all over the world. I love the diversity of each and every one of you. I am a proud United States Marine who served this great country of ours for 12 years. In the past 4 years America has taken a step back from our greatness. In many ways we are more divided than we have been since the Civil War that ended in 1865. I’ll say it again. We are the United States, not the divided states. Let’s get back to working together for common causes, public safety and equality for all Americans. We are creating our history every day. Let’s create a history we can look back on and be proud of.
So for this 4th of July, our 244th year of declaring our independence where all men (humans) are created equal, I send prayers to all that we survive this dark period in American history….World history.
I am appalled at what is happening in this country and around the world. If you are an American, I encourage you to get out and vote in November. Vote for change and vote against Donald Trump. We can’t take another four years.
Wear your mask in public, practice social distancing and wash your hands to take care of those you love and yourself. Help stop the spread of COVID-19! Work and support true equality; stamp out racism and prejudice of every kind.
God bless and have a Happy 4th of July.
