What Will America Do Now
Today America has witnessed history in the making. But today I ask what will America’s response be. Will the home of the brave and home of the free stand for this monumental moment, or will we fall.
Many Americans had record breaking turnouts both young and old at the voting booths these last couple of days leading to the election. But not everyone is happy about the results. Does America really represent the phrase united we stand divided we fall, time will only tell. You can go anywhere in America a witness all nationalities working together for the common good of freedom for all. Our true colors will show in time. Will America still represent red, white and blue, or will colors like black and white, be our downfall. Before the election you could attend any sporting event and see people of all nationalities celebrating at a football game. What will be the reaction of African American’s across America celebrating a moment in history. Will coworkers get upset? Will neighbors’ shut the door in discuss? What will tomorrow lead for us? Do African Americans deserve a right to celebrate? What will people say at work if African Americans come to work with excitement on their face.
Yesterday American’s claimed they didn’t have a prejudice bone in their body. But today I received emails of people disgusted about waking up to an African American president. Is this what it takes to have some Americans show their true colors? My wife called me this morning to tell me someone already tried to shoot the president. What happened to red, white, and blue? America needs to stand together just like we did with all the other presidents. We have learned through years of experience and history that color doesn’t matter, or does it? If you are furious about results from the election then you need to take a look at your true motives, and source of your anger. If this describes you then I say; where was the anger yesterday. This country is not run on color, its run on the blood, sweat and tears. This country is run on people who believe in a free country. This country is run on the foundation united we stand and divided we fall. Yet we will have people that are upset about our commander in chief. This man is now the new backbone of our country. So now I say to everyone what will America do now?
