“That’s what separates us from tyrants and terrorists.”

He is so right about that.

Right now, there is a large swath of Americans who are supporting tyranny because they selfishly think it benefits them. What they lose sight of is that an attack on any of us is an attack on all of us. Harming Americans harms America.

The United States that this CiC described, is the country I put my hand to my heart and pledged allegiance to. This is why I saluted the flag proudly for while in uniform. Today, we are becoming less and less of that image. As a disgrace to that flag, to the dishonor of that pledge, we are becoming a nation of tyrants and terrorists. We are the kidnapper of children, the murderer of unarmed citizens, the violator of treaties. We have become a democracy that rules through fear and intimidation, at both home and abroad.

Lord, let us find our way back to the light, before we get too used to the darkness.
