I dream of a better understanding of life,
a better connection with our souls,
a better alignment with our soul purpose,
and with the soul of America.
I dream of a better understanding of love,
a better practice of love,
a better being of love,
and love with all life.
I dream of a better understanding of light,
a better connection to the light of God,
a better shining of the light within,
and the light within our enemies.
And I dream of liberty...liberty within,
and liberty for all.
I dream of an America where I can keep most of the money my husband and I work so hard for, to build a future, to spend our later years helping others and enjoying our grandchildren. I dream of a future for my children and grandchild in a country that is free, where they can work hard and have a good life without government interference. I dream of an America our founding fathers labored and fought so hard for. I dream of an America that is one nation under God.
My American dream? To not have to fear for whatever my daughter's future holds. Will she be free? Will she have opportunities? When I'm not around to help and protect her, will there be a moral and just environment in which she can live and raise her own family?
I love America, and look forward to serving the best place on earth when I can. My hero Rick Santorum sure has!
Thank you for asking me to share with you my American Dream. It would start out with, seeing all of my children and in-laws with full-time jobs so that they can continue to support their families as they have in the past years. They are all looking for employment, but from a factory worker to an attorney, they are finding absolutely nothing. Even the attorney is finding that there are a great number of "seasoned" attorneys looking for work and willing to take lesser wages, and relocate just to be employed. Also, most all of the factories around our area are all closed, and we have such an influx of mexicans in our city that even entry level jobs that high school students usually go after are taken by the illegal population. I would only wish for jobs for my family members as they are people who really do want to work, and as yet have not taken any type of government assistance.
As far as being able to do anything about the job situation in our country, I call our senators and representatives every week and keep pressing them to bring in new industry, open the pipeline, stop giving all of our benefits to the illegals, support some sort of new business loans or even grants (we give tons of free money to foreigners), and help to get rid of all of the Obama regulations on most everything we manufacture in this country. It hasn't helped as yet. But, I do hope that, one day, I can see my whole family prospering and happy once again.
By the way, I live in Illinois, so you know how much my opinion counts. I do keep trying though!
Thanks again for caring.
(P.S. - Another part of my American Dream would be to rid the White House of the traitor currently living in it. Also, all of his cabinet! Thanks)
The Constitution of the United States of America is my dream. The Bill of rights is the power to make it happen. By the Grace of God I served 33 years in the US ARMY in one capacity or another as Civil servant and soldier to defend our Constitution from all Foreign and Domestic threats. I was privileged by my ancestors blood that was Spilt for this freedom. I was privileged by their vision for my future. I would so encourage all our young to swear to faithfully defend this document not for just 33 years but all their lives as I have.
Having grown up in the 50s and 60s in a very small town in coal country during hard times I have had the good fortune to experience first hand the sense of community and respect for life and human dignity. My American Dream would be that our country embrace once again the values and moral conduct that permeated our country in earlier times. I would like to see our young people, politicians, corporate leaders, and general population return to God and live the Commandments. Once again I would like to see our Country consecrated to God as George Washington did on his inaural address.
My America is making sure that my country's values and the morals that I was raised with, are here and available for my grandchildren as they growup! My last grandchild is going to be born this year. I have 6 natural and three step grandchildren ranging from newborn to 15. Only 3 will not be in school and this is what concerns me most, that our school curriculum is changing so much, that my G'kids will not understand how hard it was on everyone that founded this country. That we cried, fought, bled, but ultimately created a wonderful country united under God and the principles He teaches. That respect, love and honor of family is first and formost in life. That we help those that cannot help themselves, but we all work hard to provide for ourselves and our families if we can.
I believe that this country has raised a nation of children who don't think they should have to work. They are given so much because that's what you always want to do is provide more for your children than you had, it's natural, but not always right ! The culture has begun to except failure as commonplace. Those culture norms that were not exceptable in my generation is now being forced upon my G'kids as apropriate. Bad behaior, indecency, those traits are promoted now.
I want my God brought back in the schools, my Pledge Of Allegience spoke at the beginning of class and church prayers are ok to speak over anyone who needs comfort. I'm saddened by the destruction progressives have forced on our younger generation, in the name of advancement. God forgive them, for they know not what they do.
Living on Hospice brings reality front and center! Things that seamed minor are now so important and the most important of all, is you leaving your family safe and secure.
I want to become a filmmaker and make films that raise our spirits...
