On September 12th 2001, 300 million Americans put aside what divides us, and rallied around what Unites us all. We proudly flew our flags and wore T-Shirts that said these colors don’t run. WE demonstrated to the world we are ONE PEOPLE and ONE NATION under God. It’s time for us to seriously get back to some real “Common Sense.” It’s Hyphenated America that’s really dividing us, yes we have diverse cultures in our society and that’s what makes this nation strong. The rest of the world doesn’t divide us in groups, they see us all as Americans. I would love to see the day when people will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character. Using the race card to silence your political opponents is destructive! We were all born with an equal ticket to this “Show of Life, “ and when our performance is over, and we leave the stage for the last time, I hope we all get to see those flags of Unity flying in everyones neighborhood before the light fades.
