The important thing is not to be bitter over life’s disappointments. Learn to let go of the past… and recognize that everyday won’t be sunny. And when you find yourself lost in the darkness and despair… remember it’s only in the black of night you can see the stars, and those stars will lead you back home. So don’t be afraid to make mistakes, to stumble, to fall, cause most of the time the greatest rewards come from doing the things that scare you the most. Maybe you’ll get everything you wish for… Maybe you’ll get more than you ever could have imagined… Who knows where life will take you. The road is long and in the end… the journey is the destination.

Okay everyone, let me tell you what I saw on the news

Yesterday on the news, I saw something dreadful. At a university, a black dude trampled over an American flag. That’s something that’s actually offensive, because I sure was offended by it. Then one of the reporters asked why he would do such a thing. He said that it represented “white supremacy”. Has he ever paid attention in history class? I doubt it. If anything, the flag resembles his freedom. His hard fought for freedom.

To anyone reading this, let me give a short history lesson. Over a hundred years ago, black people were enslaved to white people. One man, Abraham Lincoln, saw this as a real problem. He was elected president and abolished slavery. Then a war broke out. A Civil War. North vs. South. Freedom vs. Enslavement. Many lives were lost, but it was not in vain. Freedom had won.

However, they were free from slavery, but they didn’t have the rights to do anything the white people could. In 1963, a good sir by the name of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr, gave the famous “I Have A Dream” speech. 

Fast forward to nowadays. Blacks have freedom. Whites have freedom. They both have equal opportunity. Then this dreadful man steps over the American Flag, claiming is represents “white supremacy”, even though there is no such thing as white supremacy.


Not anymore, at least.
