Standing Alone

October 26, 2020

On February 22,1943 a twenty-one year old German, named Sophie Scholl walked bravely to her execution. She and her older brother died by guillotine under a blue sky. Her brother Hans's last words rang throughout the courtyard and the world "Long Live Freedom!" They had lived up to their consciences and to Sophie's words, "Stand up for what you believe in, even if you are standing alone.
  In the midst of a country of evil, led by evil in the midst of peers who all firmly believe the opposite of yourself, would you conform? Maybe you would just remain silent and keep to yourself, no convictions made known. Or would you be as the Scholl's and their few friends who also died, and give all, for what? So that you would not be remembered as a coward! So that you would have some good in your life to be remembered by! Or in the hope that many or just one mind would be changed for the good as Sophie Scholl said just before her cruel death, "Such a fine, sunny day, and I have to go, but what does my death matter, if through us, thousands of people are awakened and stirred to action?” What stirred them to such courage? 
  They were normal Germans, they were not Jew's and therefore not targeted, they could have stayed safe and been silent. Faith is a leading role, for if one believes in no moral absolutes what is evil? what is good? They were Christians raised in a Christian home, at one point they returned home to find that their father had just been arrested, he taught them that under no circumstance does one back down and they chose that for themselves! They chose courage!
We are at a climax in our country, will we continue to fall or will we defy the world and rise again? Let us rise! We cannot rise however, without our fellow countrymen at our backs. We cannot rise save the people rise with us!
  America stands in the way of the whole world falling to anarchy and communism, the people in America who hate her know that they can only take America down if she is divided. Race against race, young against old, rich against poor.
The problem? People are warmed to Socialism, why is that bad? Isn't socialism where we get free stuff? free college? aren't we promised that everything will be equal? Yes, that may be promised but time and again it has failed! look at Venezuela and what happened there? They were prosperous and doing well and in a matter of a few years the people were starving. They fell when their leader said, all will be equal and there they had it, economic failure.
  Socialism leads to nothing but communism. People now do not understand what communism is, the horrors of it. Read one story of a communism survivor, listen to one person, an average person, who lived in Cuba, or China and you will here the truth. You need to know what communism is! It is nothing to play with!
  Communism was regarded as dead and for that reason they could push themselves into our schools, into our politics into our very homes. Socialism defined is "a stage of society in Marxist theory transitional  between capitalism and communism and distinguished by unequal distribution of goods and pay according to work done."
  What we have to remember and fight for is that America was founded with the intention of having, limited government! The power was to be with the people, we were to support ourselves not have the government support us, so that we were in control, not the government! People today think there is nothing wrong with socialism because they do not understand communism and the horrors of it, as communist founder of the Soviet Union Vladimir Lenin said, "The goal of socialism is communism."
  Those who hate our country want to take over, now of course if you want to know who I am talking about, then I will state this, I am a Christian, I am a patriot, and I am not a liberal. You may draw your own conclusions, however I will say that I firmly uphold our current president as one who loves America and seeks good for her not evil. I can not change your mind, but I want to die knowing I stood up when the whole of existence sat. “It may well be that we will have to repent in this generation. Not merely for the vitriolic words and the violent actions of the bad people, but for the appalling silence and indifference of the good people who sit around and say, “Wait on time.”-Martin Luther King Jr. 
  I will not sit and wait for ruin! Country after country falls deeper into ruin, America remains  but, oh! the pain I feel when I think about her past and her now! A day goes not by without me coming near to, or even weeping for her!
 "He alone, who owns the youth, gains the future." -Adolf Hitler Make up your minds, we will not be those young people! Don't allow people to control you! Think for yourself, don't listen to the people whose main goal in life is to have control over you and I. We must remember history! No country has ever done well when they have communist leaders, the people starve, they are murdered. We must stop it, and alone or not I, for one, will not take part in the rising horror and I hope that you will not either. "Should I keep back my opinions at such a time, through fear of giving offense, I should consider myself as guilty of treason towards my country, and of an act of disloyalty toward the Majesty of Heaven, which I revere above all earthly kings."-Patrick Henry
Stand up! Countries only fall from lack of resistance! Stop falling and we shall rise together!
