Seven years ago our soon to be first lady made this statement. 2008 - MICHELLE OBAMA, : "Let me tell you something. For the first time in my adult life, I am proud of my country, because it feels like hope is finally making a comeback".
When I heard the words I cringed. We had come so far as a country. We still had a long way to go, but we were working together. In my opinion the last seven years have been disastrous for us as a nation. We are not united. We are weaker domestically and internationally, We are divided on so many fronts, Wasn't Barack Hussein Obama supposed to be some sort of unifier?
Where has the hope gone. Its been replaced by fear of government and mistrust. Its has replaced a sense of security with fear from with in and with out. It has been replaced from the people making moral decisions and choices, to our governing body telling us what is right and what is wrong. I long for leadership that remembers that this is a republic and they are elected buy us to represent us, not direct us.
I still have hope for the future, I still love this great country we live in. Tomorrow we celebrate the 4th of July, It is more than a day of independence, take time to reflect on the sacrifices that have been made for you and I, to review the declaration of independence and the constitution. Read and teach them to your children and grand children.
Those Principles were sound then, they are sound today. May we truly return to of, by, and for the people.
God Bless you all and God Bless America!
