"When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness"
This is what the constitution of the United States of America says about our country. But is it really true? I believe the keyword is self-evident...
The constitution, it would seem, was not made straight off the top of the heads of our "forefathers". Instead, it would seem that it was created from a copy of yet another country's constitution. Our whole framework, social status, money, every damn thing, was created from the mirror concept of another country...
"Free at last, free at last... Thank God Almighty, I am free at last." Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
But are we free? We get loans and grants in order to go to school or build things for work. We join organizations for lifetime networks and connections as well as to learn the "true". We give up some part of our freedom in order to succeed thru life. Freedom of choice? Is it really free? From day one, we were taught what was right and wrong in a morally disrupt society. Is that freedom?
Even some of the churchs, "the holy sanctuary" of the Lord; our God, have because corrupt. Some even teach false teachings not originally written by the Disciples, Jesus, and Moses. Hell...not even all of the original gospels are today's bible. What is wrong with people today?!
Lord, help us...thy sinful children of today for we truly know not what we do.... Bring us out of this damnation into your holy pasture. Forgive us for being human. Amen.
Freedom....Is this why so many have died? For a idea...a concept which wasn't truly realized and brought forth?
Things like these lead men and women like George Washington, Henry Arthur Callis, Medger Evers, and others for fight for what they believe in. Why? Because probably after they found out about the shit in today's society, they chose to fight for what they believed it. They probably felt as though it was the only pure, untainted thing they had. I understand now. So I know what I must do....
Ultimately, one must find what to believe in...be it true or fake. As long as it is true to them...it is true even if it was made up at the last minute. This is drives men to do courageous things......faith and hope. These are the truths of the world. "Faith is the substance of things hoped for and the evidence of things not seen..." It's in the bible....
