How to make America great again

The seed has been sown in the garden of the nation that is a Mecca for freedom to those seeking peace amid turmoil. The symbol on Ellis island showing the Statue of Liberty is a sight of freedom and hope, a relief for those who once lived in despair. Now more than ever before this nation is in trouble as the wind of change has taken this hope and once again turned it into despair. It has been brewing for years but now with the advent of a new Chief in town, this has emboldened the madness taking place amongst us. We are in trouble: far more than we have ever known. The madness is raging without any chance to reign it in. Let us put a stop to this flow of madness that has never been seen before. The path is closing in as the road ahead is winding to a narrow foothold, soon we will have no place to go; we are hemmed in with a fence of hate. Lord have mercy!

How do you make America great again? America is now the laughingstock of the nations of the world sending out treats and waving the false wand of imperialism trying to take back lost territories it never should have control. Just like the philistine’s Goliath of Gath it has a leader that is roaring insult at the rest of the world and worse of all its very own people. We are heading back to the dark old days of the barbarians where the ruler ruled supreme; a place where questioning authority would mean the loss of life. How are we going to control this epidemic that has engulf us and are dividing our souls? Remember a house divided will never stand!

How to make America great again. Focus on nation building, look after those things that matters to the common man. Stop trying to repeal and replace; fix the things that needs tweaking. We do not need more hate; we need love and togetherness. Speak up when things are wrong and shut up when there is nothing good to be said! When leaders in authority propagate the process, it spreads like wild fire sending a nation into division; splitting us apart. To make America great is to heal the wounds of injustice, stop the
inequality and covert racism in every aspect of life. All life matters but stop the genocide of the black race who suffers the share force of police brutality and the mass incarceration of our brothers and sister for minor incidents while slapping the hands of the others with a mere warning and letting them go free to repeat the cycle again. Why not repay us for the atrocities committed against us? Everyone else has been paid! Why hold out and disregard the powerlessness of the people who suffers and are still suffering. Talk about race relations is getting us nowhere. We must come to the realization that we are all of one race and that is humanity! It doesn’t matter who you are we are all related: how you treat your neighbor is how you are treating yourself.

Make America great again when you stop having people live in fear of being deported from the only nation they ever know. Let us look at DACA with a sense of “Decency for American Children to Advance” no matter how they got here. It is not their fault that they are here! They are making worthwhile contribution and should be treated with respect. They are the future that America is building upon. Why destroy the foundation for freedom, togetherness and self-respect for political gain? One day you will awake from your slumber only to ask yourself what have we done? By that time, it will be too late. The seed of destruction would have been planted and grown into maturity and the nation once prosperous and proud will live in despair. Wake up and look up, the end is near!

Every great nation must ask the question: Where do we go from here? History will remind us of those in the past who thought they were invincible but has now flatlined into despair. They are recorded into history as disgraced; lying in proverbial disgrace because of the path they chose when they were at the top of their game. They were too proud to look after the poor, the homeless and the forgotten. The one percent was there focus, enriching the rich and trampling the poor. They took away the rights of the hardworking man and silence their voices. They have become dictators seeking to crush anyone who disagree with their point of view. Using the White House to become a decadence of society meddling into things that has no bearing into good governance. Just like the kings of old, the writing is on the wall. It’s time to look back and retrace our steps; make right the wrong and ask for mercy before our days come to an end!

We can make America great again when we seek to compensate the blacks for the hundreds of years working as slaves; building this nation taking care of your kids while you beat our brothers and sisters into subjection brain washing them into your way of thinking trying to destroy our culture as if we never matter. We will rise to build this nation just like we did in the past. The foolish few has tried to stop us opposing all we have done trying to rewrite history but just like dust we will forever rise amid despair opposition and discrimination. Let us make America great again by truly following the principles of love, tolerance and unity! Arise, arise, arise, people open up your eyes!

Remove not the Ancient Landmark

The richness of our history is a heritage that is needed to be preserved. Our fathers fought and gave their lives so that we can enjoy the freedom, peace and harmony gained. To tear apart in a moment what is so dear to us is but a travesty; it is a stripping away of our dignity and self-worth. The bonds of love and togetherness has crafted a nation despite the turbulence that continues to endure.  Who would have thought that we would be facing this moment of crisis?

The time is upon us the moment when the decision that was made has driven us off course and we are now drifting in bewilderment and amazement the direction we are heading. All eyes are on us; the frog jump in the cold water where it became comfortable, it is now boiling and it cannot get out. When one decide not to participate the result is catastrophe. Are we the laughing stock or are we too blind and bewildered to realize the water is getting hotter and it is time to jump! Let us stand with one united voice and with a clear message; “enough is enough!” Get up stand up’ stand up and unite and don’t give up the fight!

We are under attack and it is not from the outside. So, we are afraid of the terrorist. Have you ever thought of terror within? The fabric of who we are; the good we have done will be gone in a moment because we chose to remove the ancient landmark which our fathers have built. There goes the saying, “give me liberty or give me death” which way are we heading? Is this the end of our civil society? I get it, we are too afraid to let anyone in so we will build a wall of comfort and ease while hiding in the dark afraid of our own shadows. Now we don’t want to let anyone out!

We all believe in freedom. It is said that this country was built on the idea of freedom therefore there stands a representation of what we believe. It is standing on Liberty Island. This statue is of a robed female figure representing Libertas, the “Roman goddes” who bears a torch and a “tabula ansata (a tablet evoking the law) upon which is inscribed the date of the “American Declaration of Independence”, July 4, 1776. A broken chain lies at her feet. The statue is an icon of freedom and of the United States, and was a welcoming sight to immigrants arriving from abroad. Now times are changing and I am sure there are tears running down the eyes of this monument as it stands with hand up held even when the vision of its creator is facing a gloomy future.

No matter how rich or poor you are there is one thing that you should not change and this is the things the was implanted in you from those who have blaze the trail that you now must follow. The moments the stories and mementoes that you have been given and are now a part of who you are; the values and much more. The saying is, don’t remove the ancient landmark that your fathers have set. It is the values, the rich history and the dignity we gained with the passage of time. Can we be so naïve to think that those things do not matter? Greatness is not the ability to destroy what took centuries to build, it is the humility gained from knowing that you are around when you are needed most. Let us not tear down the landmarks our fathers have set; let us build a bridge with an outstretched arm to welcome strangers in. This is what greatness is; linking the world with peace hope and togetherness.

The scriptures said, “I was naked and you clothe me, hungry and you feed me, a stranger and you took me in

What do we mean by the old landmark? A landmark was considered a sacred space that helped perpetuate family holdings and was used as a means of protection against deceit, error, and confusion. In the ancient days, it was the custom for someone who had land adjacent to someone else to have it stolen because that other person would adjust the land mark to steal the property of the other.  The landmark was set as the boundary between the two properties. Let us look at it from another point of view! The things handed down from generations and given to us by those who have fought so that we can enjoy a good life without going through the things they had to go through. The things left for us; the values they shared and the strength and fortitude endured just so that we could live in peace and prosperity. These are the things we should hold on to; not giving in to the values that lead to nowhere but distrust and confusion.

As I sit to write what is in my heart, I share solidarity with those who are suffering because of the lack of foresight of others. Let us use the ancient landmark as a bridge of possibility to foster courage, love and respect. Let us not spread hate and fear. We are all a part of humanity, we have different shades but we are all unique. Please share the space as we endeavor to harmonize this big blue marble we call planet earth. The landmark was set as a guide we should hold it dear, guarding it at every moment or the thief will take it when you lease expect!
