Here is a quote from Thomas Jefferson:

A government big enough to give you everything you want, is strong enough to take everything you have.


 

 

 

 

 

 

Our founding fathers wanted a government of the people with equality for all.

After all these years are we still on track or does our nation ride for a great fall?

 

We work for what we have in this land of the free and sometimes forget to share.

We see the hungry, homeless and sick but sometimes are busy to care.

 

Caring is one thing that America great and caring will keep us strong.

It was because our forefathers cared so much that this country has lasted so long.

 

Do not let you heart grow cold the needs of others for as we are all citizens we are also sisters and brothers.

How can we enjoy what riches we have and ignore the pain of these others?

 

Share what God has blessed you with and the blessings will return to you.

Simply because of the good feeling you have because it is the right thing to do.

God Bless

Right on, Lew :-)

I think the majority of the people feel as we do. But the GreedMongers, the HatePurveyors, are so blamed noisy. But, cheer up; we CaringSharingMongers are getting louder, too.

Wise call to fraternity in poetic expressions of love and care through honorable citizenry.

I salute You, poet.
