Why Our Lost – Nation Must FIND Its Way?
Many, who have, consistently, been proud of, being an American, because of the rights and freedoms, it represents, and the example, we have, previously, set, for the rest – of – the – world, feel, this lost – nation, has lost – its – way, and must, sooner, rather than later, FIND its way, if we are to restore, ourselves, to the land – of – the – free! There seems, to be, a greater degree of polarization, and division, today, than at any time, in recent memory! In the past – four years, during the administration of President Donald Trump, we have witnessed, an apparent effort, to stack – the – courts, selectively enforce freedoms, and rights, and appeal, to, xenophobia, rather than providing, a sense of unity! Many, including me, find this set – of – events, at – best, as concerning, and, at – worst, a clear, and present danger, to the way, this country proceeds forward, and considers, our Constitutional rights and guarantees! With, that in mind, this article will attempt to, briefly, consider, examine, review, and discuss, using the mnemonic approach, what this means and represents, and why it matters.
1. Face facts; freedoms; future; furnish; fruition; feelings: We can’t succeed, unless, our public leaders, and elected officials, face – the – facts, in a realistic, focused way, and pursues, furnishing, the best – path, forward! We only benefit, if/ when, protecting and enhancing all our freedoms, is a top – priority! Instead of seeking, slogan – based, leadership, such as, Make American Great Again, we must emphasize pursuing the finest – possible, future, and bringing this greatness, to – fruition! Instead of, negatively, appealing to negative feelings, wouldn’t our country benefit, if the priorities, emphasized, solutions, which were relevant, and sustainable, as well as viable?
2. Integrity; insights; involve; inspire; ideology; ideals; ideas: Wouldn’t it be nice, if those, we elect, proceeded, with absolute integrity? What does this country, stand – for, if we don’t protect, the traditional ideologies, and ideals, and involved, fairly, all our citizens? Wake up, Americans, and proceed, with rational – insights, which inspire, and unify, instead of polarize, etc! Demand those public officials, think – outside – the – box, and introduce viable ideas, which make us, better, and more, align with the nation, our Founding Fathers, envisioned!
3. Needs; nerve: We’ll only get better, if/ when, those elected, proceed with the nerve, to proceed, with an open – mind, instead of the same – old, same – old, and sought to address the needs, goals, perceptions, and priorities, of all, in a fair, equitable manner!
4. Delve deeply; deliberate; discover; details: We must begin, to look at the bigger – picture, and the best path, forward, delving – deeply, into the options and alternatives! While, timely action, is needed, it must also be, well – considerate, careful, and deliberate! It is that way, we will discover, the details, and select, a way, to serve the nation’s. and, all our citizens, needs, etc!
