Life is busy, is it not? So much to do, so much to see, so what’s wrong with taking the taking the back streets? Ahh… Smash Mouth, the 90’s… Those were the days, were they not? Well.. If you’re a 90’s kid like myself they were. If not then maybe it was the 80’s? 70’s? The 60’s? 50’s? 40’s? 30’s?!? COME ON!? How far back do you go!?
We all have our favorite moments in time, for most of us it’s from our childhood. The 90’s for me is a special thing, and they are not confined to just 1990-1999… NO, Sir! The 90’s extended well into the 2000’s, I would say that the 90’s began in 1989 and ended somewhere the same time Barack Obama was elected President. (Not saying that has any relevance at all, just that in 2008 is about when the 90’s ended) Since then kid’s have moved on from shows like Drake and Josh, Sabrina The Teenage Witch, Bill Nye The Science Guy. Teachers Pet, Toy Story… Yes, we’ve moved on from playing outside with our mere imaginations. From our water guns, baseball, cops and robbers…
Oh! Don’t dare try and play cops and robbers today, pointing your finger in the shape of a gun or using a stick and pointing it at a friend to say “pow pow” is just downright uncivil. We don’t want that in our society. Ban anything that looks like a gun, if a child pulls out a cheeto and it resembles a handgun then ban cheeto’s from the class room. I’m not saying things were better or perfect back then, but they sure were simpler. Kid’s could learn the value of a dollar by opening up a lemonade stand and making a profit. Nowadays you need the proper permits and licensing to do such a thing. We’ve become a society where the need to work a job has grown thin. People do not need a job, Government assistance is acceptable and encouraged by the Socialist-Democrats of our time.
Government and society spend all their time discouraging the young to work and then wonder why they are so lazy all the time. I’ll tell you why. It’s because they have no need for it. Government will pay for their medical expenses, their grocery bills, their electricity, they will give them free phones. Free everything. At the expense of the average hardworking American citizen. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not against helping those in need, I’m all for that. I’m just saying we have lost track of what is truly important. We need to prioritize or we will see our own demise much too soon.
What Can Be Done?
Many ask “What can we do to set America straight again, how can we change our outcome?” we must encourage hard work, we must teach the value of a dollar and the value of life. Nothing is free in this life, everything is bought and paid for with one price or another. Freedom itself is not free. It was paid for with the ultimate price. The deaths of many American soldiers who were Brothers, Son’s, Fathers. Friends, Uncle’s and Patriots. We owe it to them to set America straight again. We owe it to them to make things right.
The question has been posed time and time again. “Which would you rather have? Peace or Freedom?” Because the fact of the matter is this. If you have a peaceful world, the odds are most likely to be that you will have a world without Freedom and you will be forced to put aside all your own personal beliefs. There will be a set of guidelines that everyone must abide by to maintain law and order. If these guidelines are not followed then severe punishment will follow.
And with Freedom will come war, because freedom must be defended at all cost. For without freedom, one cannot embrace their own individualism. Without freedom you can have no difference of opinion. And where there is a difference of opinion, there also is a necessary means for war. Because it is the contrary ideals of men that lead them to war, instead of agreeing to disagree many times tyrants would see that the entire world bow down to their ideology. But a land of Freedom does not fight as offense, we fight as defense. Defending life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. For these things are precious and dear. Without these things, what is life?
For a land of freedom does not seek to persecute those around them that disagree with them, only to stand by ready to defend it’s ideals when it’s enemies rise up against them. Ready to liberate those who need liberation but most importantly, those who WANT liberation. That is where we have failed at times. We try and liberate those who do not wish to be free, many enjoy the ideology of communism and socialism. We cannot change that. Which I find interesting. American Patriots do not want to change the ideology of the communists and the socialists. If they wish to live that way far away from us than that is fine.
But why do so many in this country wish to incorporate such ideologies of communism and socialism into our American culture? These are things our founding Fathers went to war over. They are rolling over in their graves to think we would ever embrace such tyranny. I for one will NEVER embrace it. I stand against. Let freedom ring!
I bet by now you are wondering, “what on earth does any of this have to do with ‘upcoming blog posts’?” Don’t worry, I am wondering the EXACT same thing! I intended to write something entirely different but what you’ve read is the outcome of my own bewildered search for words. Nevertheless, what’s done is done. Is it not? All I have left to do now is come to some type of conclusion. Which would be this, short and sweet and to the point. Time’s change, life is not always simple, freedom is not free and there cannot be freedom where there is peace nor peace where there is freedom. Man will always have arguments and disagreements which will lead to war and pain and suffering. But let’s not let that pain and suffering be in vain, let us honor the lives of those who fought and died to defend our freedom and our liberty.
Let – Freedom – RING!
Now, the upcoming blog posts… If you remember correctly, the last post I wrote was a bit of a touchy/feel-y one. Emotional, sad. Heartwarming and deep. Well the next few blog posts I have planned will not be any different than the last. I have had quite an emotional early year so far. Good and bad. Happy and sad. Nevertheless, the good outweighs the bad, I am always able to derive some type of heart-wrenching message from my deepest emotional turmoils and day to day events. And that is what I have done to be able to share the posts I have planned. It will be a three part series of blog posts. Three titles, three distinct messages, three different emotions and thoughts I myself often have and feel. I will list an index below.
- Dry Tears
- Lost Time
- A New Dawning
I look forward to sharing these posts with you and much more in the near future. Until then, I hope that you are greatly blessed beyond measure. May Yahweh shine his face upon you and may Yahweh give thee…
