4 "What Concerns Me"
Tribute to our troops
Let's never forget what our past and present troops have sacraficed for this country and the flag that represents the United States of America. There are also the families of those troops that have sacrificed and should not be forgotten. Also, the National Anthem that always brings a tear to my eye, and so many other Americans, just because we are so proud to be the Americans we are.This country was built on bravery from the very beginning. Even our forefathers signed the Declaration of Independence with a price on their heads. We, as Americans, need to continue to be brave and should never let anyone change our pride and beliefs. Greg
We should be offended
What Concerns Me Today
There are things going on today that really concern me. You hear every day that someone that has come here from another country or that was raised in this country and because they were raised by their heritage, they feel they have the right to try and change the way we live in this country.
This country grew with God and religion in their way of life and way of belief. This country has been raised with god in its ways of life. And yet someone feels offended because the word God is on our money, or in the pledge of allegiance.
Some of them say that at Christmas time the sight of a Nativity Scene is offensive to them. So they complain and all of a sudden the law says it is illegal to have a Nativity Scene set up in a public place.
What I want to know and what concerns me about this is, what ever happened to the “civil rights of the majority”? It seems anymore that the “civil rights of the minority” is more important than anything. With things like this happening it makes me feel like we are moving toward a Nazi or Communist country.
If things, like having God or nativity scenes offends someone, let them go back to where they came from. Let us live our lives the way we want to here and have been doing for hundreds of years. If they want to say something offends someone, the fact that someone wears their native clothes or such could be offensive to me. But, in this country, that is their freedom to do.
All I have to say is, let us Americans live our lives and you can live yours. If something offends you, either go back where you came from or go lock yourself in your house, which you probably wouldn’t have where you came from, or live with it like we live with all of the immigrants that come here.
I'm not a real religious person, but I feel strong enough about our freedoms in this country that I will stand up for their rights too. I will stand up for anyone's right to believe the way they want. Just don't try to force them on anyone else.
Please feel free to comment and/or click on feedbacks so I have an idea of how I am doing.
