Every day, a photograph, a poem. Freedom. Country. Do we have one? Freedom means to live without fear of a person with a differing opinion or life style or political view deciding to take you out. We are moving away from following the rule of law and the respect for others. When one group dominates, what do the others do? You know the answer— which is why we once agreed to follow the rule of law and respect each other in our diversity. Respect each other in our diversity.
Oh say, can you see
by the dawn’s early light
that so freely we still
live in respect to each one?
Where fair laws and our courts
Through the perilous coup
O’er the heroes we watch’d
Were so gallantly standing
Through the lies and the hate
To prove through the night
That their oath was still there
Oh say, does our one-out-of-many still standSheri Edwards
O’er the land of the free
And the home of the brave?
