Listen now, Twelve score and five years; hence our nation is embraced in civil unrest and anarchism.
Many of our people have forgotten the principal idea which founded our liberty, ‘that all men are created equal’ we have shamed those who gave their last breath so that our children may exist with the freedom to speak, worship and pursue happiness.
We have allowed the government to enact law’s amongst us without our consent. To pillage our tithing to the benefit other nations while ignoring the suffrage of our young & decrepitude.
There are factions amongst us that doubt our cause is still noble, nor was ever great or that we all will answer to a higher lord for our sins of morality. We passively listen to their increased ‘ideation’ with rhetorical volume, because we have not instilled in our legacy the convictions of our founding forefathers.
We compete now on a world stage, both mightily and mentally.
We endeavor to reach into the stars and beyond. If we neglect the simple principles to judge a man by the content of his character and hold each accountable for his actions, we will have no virtue to bring to this new universe.
At one point in the Gettysburg Address, Lincoln says: “We here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain, that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.”
We, as a United Country, must cast aside our prejudices by reasserting our commitment to this ideology.
I individually but not alone commit to preserving our legacy and honor those souls who established our sovereignty as heroes but as men and accept the indignation of their infirmity and my own.
Their feats and memorials shall forever be cast in truth history with the blessings of our creator.
