Thy Name I Love

PROMPT: This I Believe

I realized that this could mean,
the end,
the beginning,
I realized that this could mean,
that we,
want to repeat,

 "They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety."
                                                              - Benjamin Franklin

I realized that what can't,
be honest,
be sure,
give up,
is too much to think on.

 "If we ever forget that we are One Nation Under God, then we will be a nation gone under."
                                           - Ronald Reagan

I've always realized that,
I love America,
I love her beginnings,
I love her, 
no matter what,
the U.S.A was a miracle.

 "Liberty cannot be established without morality, nor morality without faith."
           - Alexis de Touquville

                                                 I believe that we can fall, but God can not.

    I love this! And I agree so much! And I love the Ben Franklin quote! So, in class a few weeks ago, we were discussing the accuracy of history. One of the kids in my class doubted it and we spent the entire day arguing over how we could be sure what we knew was true and that our ancestors hadn't just made up a bunch of lies. Just something interesting I thought you might like to think about.

    Wow, this is so, so powerful! I love it. Absolutely amazing. Those quotes are simply beautiful. I love the title! I also love that part about history repeating itself. Well, maybe I don’t. But I also love your profile pic! I’m sorry I don’t have any pieces to comment on yet, I’m writing one now XD.

    Re : Ah, I see. I am not really into politics, as a matter of fact, I hate politics. But everyone has the right to voice their opinion and on that, I am with you.
