What it meant in 1776 and what it means today
And we always include the members of the first Nations, the first inhabitants who had to give up their lands and maybe live an abject poverty but are also remembered as human beings deserving of the same rights we are trying to get back today. Yes we can with the impeccable leadership of President Williamson.
Excellent tribute to our beloved country. Thank you.
It might be important to recognize the words "among these" in the sentence, "We are endowed by our creator with certain unalienable rights, and AMONG these, are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness." So the three listed are just important examples of our certain unalienable rights. What might be additional unalienable rights?
One ask: please include the homeless in your list of marginalized and prejudiced groups. As this population grows at a now VERY SCARY clip, all-encompassing, newly evicted souls, daily adding to the mix, tent encampments, barely existing, mental health and sleeping conditions not even fit for our pets!
the worthlessness with which they are treated is abominable
Thank you for all of your efforts and vision
Always on point. 🎇
Couldn’t agree more Marianne! Marianne for President!!!
Both beautiful and excellent! Indeed, we shall pledge to restore the principles: we have greatness within us Marianne and together we must heal and make our country even better. Peace.
"...if too many generations allow ourselves to be seduced into forgetting not only the importance of those principles but also our need to protect them, then our nation will wander into a darkness from which we will not be able to return."
The most truthful and consequential words of the piece. By the way, in all probability, it's only one generation more and it'll be "too many"...
"It is our turn to be brave."
The noblest conclusion...
So...what's the concrete plan of action given the specifics of the present situation?
Amen and Onward!
Way to moved away.
Lord. I’m a practitioner of The Course. Read Gary’s books. Went on his cruise many years ago. “Don’t waste your Energy on those that can’t receive “. Ego was so divisive within the Course elite. It was undermining any true advocate.
This is one of your better essays. Happy July 4th to you, and a Happy Birthday to you this coming weekend. Much love to you, Marianne. Even tho we've had our differences, my love for you remains stronger than any of those differences. Just as for so many Americans, love of country remains stronger than any of our internal differences and struggles.
Well, the campaign is ramping up with MW getting some go od early coverage due to her local meetups in NH, SC, etc. She has a plan and platform but, perhaps, you mean something else when you write 'plan:?
With your leadership and determination to make change, we can become the democracy we were intended to be. Vote! Vote for Marianne Williamson!
Thanks Marianne, the so heavily overworked MW (seeing the evident xtra high stress w the video today).
So I have to put in my comment ahead of reading all the way thru our July 4 essay (will certainly get back to soon) as am sure it will be good).
Pres Adams statement re revisiting the big day on an annual basis. Don't think the good man would be expecting picnics,drink, tossing frisbees etc over some kind of study review! And what about getting on the big bird to escape your reality,etc.
I'm sure I could ramble on plenty here and now, but will just put out one concept. That would be in Adams maybe missed the fact there's business interests etc (were in the midst of something large called "industrial age"), economics and resultant side effects.
Such as is, be there's more than enough to consider re natural process, with some heavy weight conflicts and like to bring undesirable cross- challenges.
So perhaps first up for you and I, study etc the assorted aspects of, sufficiently, to obtain better knowledge and perspective so to be in control. (tbc)
