For the last week, I’ve been staring at my screens and wondering how we got here. How the “greatest country in the world” allowed a candidate to reach the highest office, its simple…selfishness.
It’s something that we’ve witnessed since 9/11. We could have helped the world, we chose to bomb it.
We built massive houses, spent thousands on cars and then in 2007, we were all wondering how it could have happened.
We got greedy. We felt entitled because that’s what we’ve been told .
As an American I’ve been told I’m better than someone in any other part of the world, but when you travel, read history or know someone who has traveled and talked to them about the rest of the world, you learn, we’re not that special, we’re not privileged, and we’re certainly not the greatest country in the world.
The are countries around the world with our freedoms, with the same rights we have, but there are also countries where we could do a lot of good, but after this last week, I don’t see the latter happening.
Some of us want to push the world away, we want to eliminate certain people from our country because they’re different from us.
Here’s what we need to do in the future:
Stop saying we’re the greatest country in the world. You can’t be the greatest country when you choose to remove 3 million people, take away the rights of the few to “make America great again”
This country was founded by immigrants, most of us have roots that run deep in this country, my ancestors fought in the revolution and fought on the Union side in the Civil War.
I’ll be damned if someone is going to say that immigrants destroyed this country when it was immigrants from across the ocean looking for better lives for themselves and their families that built this country.
It was founded by immigrants and for immigrants and if I’m wrong we should tear down the Statue of Liberty.
I love my country and I want her to be a place I can be proud of. America is already great and anyone who says otherwise is lying to you.
