The pain of being Politically correct
GETTING ALONG WITH ONE ANOTHER
What has happened to our world? Why are people more offended today than they used to be? Why is it that on picture, one action can cause rioting in the streets, attacking our police and others? What has happened to being a good human being?
I don't know about you, but I am sick and tired of being politically correct. I am tired of someone getting offended at the drop of a hat. Using terms like racially motivated, biased, etc. We are all human beings. We ALL deserve respect from other human beings that share this world with us. When someone breaks the law, they should pay for their crimes. I am not saying by any means that they should be beaten or treated badly. I am saying that they should be arrested. When I hear things like BLACK LIVES MATTER! How about the lives of White, Asian, Indian, Muslim? We all should matter. We all have every right to be on this earth. We are here to live our lives, work, play and raise our children. We DON'T have the right to treat people or things with hatred, to inflict harm and certainly to deface things that don't belong to us.
With this election year coming up, we have been more diverse than ever. Some want to vote for a woman who lied about Benghazi, about emails that she discarded. Some want to vote for a man who has been vocal on a number of issues, when he should not have said a thing. And then there are some who are going to write in a candidate. We need to run our country together. We must stand together to be united, to show other countries we won't back down when terrorists fly planes into buildings, take people hostage, and certainly not give these terrorists what they are asking for. We don't owe anyone an apology for our stance on World issues. We owe the men and women of our military ( and their families) our gratitude for their sacrifices. Some have given their lives for the freedoms that many take for granted.
I don't know about you, but I am tired of possibly ( possibly) hurting someones feelings because they don't believe in what I believe in God, Country and Home. We have these freedoms that is why the United States of America is the greatest country in the world. It is time to fly our flag proudly, to believe in God or Allah or Budda. It is time to recognize that yes,we may be of different beliefs, different colors, different backgrounds, but this is what makes us great. This is what makes America. Be proud to fly Old Glory! Be proud to go to church, be proud of your children and your families history. There is no one else like you! You are as unique as the next person. Whether you are Black, White, Asian, Indian, Muslim, YOU have a right to be who you are, Gay, Straight, Bi, it doesn't matter. You are you. And you are loved.
To the World you are one person, but to one person you are the World!
