If I could sit down with one of the founding fathers I would ask them; When they started this country did they want all this violence? The founding fathers wanted it to be a safe place without worries. Is that what it looks like to you?
When the founding fathers created this country they wanted all the american citizens to be able to walk around on the streets of their town and not worry about getting kidnapped, shot, ect. yet today, gangs are a bad part of our society. Sometimes, you see on the news that a young boy or girl has been shot and killed. Should that really be happening? I don't think so. Gang members should be in school getting ready for a higher education.The thing about it is the kids just made one bad choice that can destroy their lives forever.Some are husbands and fathers, when the day is done they don't know if they're going to see there wife or kids ever again. Once your in a gang it is hard to get out, and it saddens me to see innocent Americans fall into this trap.
Today, the cops are doing a good job by keeping it under control. Also, because of all the hard work they do you don't hear about shootings or other gang related actions much anymore.So I would like to thank them for that. The hard work that they put in is for the saftey of you and me, and I appreciate that. Also, there are our national forces.The airforce, army, ect... It takes courage to go out there and give everything you have to your country, and because of that I would say that i'm proud to be an American. I would like to support them as much as I can. I wish I had the guts to fight and risk my life for our safety.So, for the men and women out there that are risking there lives or those that have done so in the past I want to thank you.
Are you a patriot? Im not talking about a New England patriot. I'm talking about a very special type of patriot, one that has a deep love for his or her country and will do everything in their power to save it. That type of patriot.Think about that for a second. Would you do all you can to preserve the great United States Of America? Honestly, I believe every one of you reading this would make that sacrifice for your country.Sure we may be kids and we may not know much, but we care about the American dream and the ways of this country. Although we are kids, we will fight and we will win!
When the founding fathers created this great country they didnt want mass amounts of violence to take place. I ask you today, as a American citizen, to stand up for your country and end this violence. If we united and fought for the cause of our country our founding fathers would be proud. JOIN ME TO FIGHT!
