Writer Seeks Troops Home, End of Bigotry, Healthcare for All for
web posted December 19, 2011
I believe the lyrics from John Lennon, “So this is Christmas”, is an
appropriate way to start this letter. It is Christmas all over the
world. As I acknowledge this, I can not help but wonder, “Which country
and / or who are the people that keep and honor Christmas in the most
fitting way?” Is it The United States? Is it the fact that we have nine
percent unemployment; due in part to the fact that so, so many of our
Christmas gifts come from other countries?
Is it the fact that our very own government can not agree that all, I
repeat; all Americans need health insurance? Is it the fact that U.S.
Troops; (human beings); are fighting and dying in two countries where
it is highly rumored these governments are very corrupt? Is it the fact
that after well over 200 years of being a country, we still have
bigotry and prejudice?
If you are like me and don’t like the answers to these questions, it is
not too late to make the answers more positive for the sake of our
future! We have got to come to some understanding that we can not
continue to purchase almost everything that is made in other countries!
We have got to understand that U.S. Troops are also moms, dads, sons,
and daughters! Our U.S. Troops need, I repeat; need to be brought home;
NOW ! As for the bigotry and the denial of health insurance, I
believe these go hand-in-hand. How can a society claim to be civilized
when so, so many millions of our citizens are without the very, very
necessary safety net of health insurance ?
Perhaps this Christmas will be the start of better times in our
country. If we all, I repeat; all truly understand the real meaning of
Christmas, we can change things for the better!
