A Haiku - America
"USA!" we shout,
Silently praying for us:
Life to remain good.
Creeds and oaths we made.
Allegiance never to wain.
Good times, bad times, equal.
Led by leaders true,
Beneath the red, white, and blue.
Free now and ever.
My neighbor, we two,
Share a common bond of love.
one for....all....for one.
We each do our part.
No matter the sacrifice.
Standing tall and proud.
Let us not forget
Those who went on before us.
From many our one.
E Pluribus Unum has been what we were. It must be what we are.
The unity we felt when attacked on 9/11 must define us now day by day.
President George Washington stressed that our liberty depends upon our unity, and that parties must not divide us section against section, political faction against political faction.
We must remind ourselves that whatever our differences we are all fellow citizens. As citizens we are all Americans.

November: the month when "The war to end all wars" ended; yet wars go on. November: the month when America's elections end, and governments go on.
By the ending days of winter all of nature yearns for spring.
What defines a true leader? It isn't just charisma and sensing their power. It isn't just making us afraid so we are mobilized. It's being true, honest, fair, up front, and out front. This Haiku examines leadership.
