American symbolism, pieces of cloth, and our American way is hated throughout the world today. Why would a country whose only desire was true freedom, become so loathed? It is not just hate, but an emotional anger which renders the desire of annihilation.
Now, seeing it outside of our country is not unusual. There will always be countries who want to destroy our way of life. Usually because they do not want their citizens to get any ideas. Control is a potent aphrodisiac.
But when we see this kind of abomination among Americans within America, it is as though Martin Luther King Jr. never walked these streets. World War II never happened and the Revolutionary War is a distant memory concerning a bunch of subversive men and women.
America is not perfect, which translates into Americans are not perfect. But once, we were a people united together to try to bring about peace, justice, and the freedom to worship. Sadly people have found it easier to protest by sitting down, or holding signs and yelling. Another image and more noise added to the billions and billions of caustic confusion floating around the world today.
Becoming the solution is the only answer to change in America. Our forefathers became the solution, when they wanted freedom. America became the solution when communism wanted to rule the world. Martin Luther King Jr. became the solution when oppression of the black race could no longer be endured.
Being the solution is not about sitting, yelling, or any other type of destructive devices. It is about putting on the uniform, integrating yourself, and utilizing helpful alternatives into dying communities because of gangs and violence. Solution is doing! Laziness must be replaced with tireless, selfless service. And then there will be real change.
The black athletes who paycheck is in the top 5% of the world could be a way for peace and change. Think about Chicago, a city that is overwhelmed with gangs and violence. Now let’s take 10% (a tithe) of the top five players on the Chicago Bears team yearly salary, it comes out to roughly 37 million dollars. Ten percent is 3 million 7 hundred thousand.
What would happen to those areas if three million dollars was put into them each year, helping these communities rise above the poverty. Education, jobs, small business start-ups, and Police becoming a part of the community. Soon the people would take back their neighborhoods and gangs, violence, and crime would have nowhere to hide!
America has freedoms which no other country in the world adheres to. And that is why we are so hated. But if we let the hate that evil brings infiltrate Americans, America will no longer exist.
Instead we need to allow the love and peace of Jesus Christ permeate throughout our land. Evil would fade away. And then we will stand together; and race, class status, young, old, sexual orientation, Jew, Christian, and Muslim will know no division.
If it has to start somewhere, let it be me. What about you?
God Bless You!
God Bless American!
