BUILD YOUR NATION

A nation is constantly being built, regardless of how long it has existed.  That is a different thought for most of us, who want to point to the founders and say that they did the whole job.  Unfortunately, that is like saying that a house is complete as soon as the foundation is laid.

Such a perspective is important:  If we are building, what kind of quality control do we want to have?  What is each person doing to see that the nation is built with excellence?

 

When you think of the strengths and qualities you want your nation to have?

Would you accept a list like:
Angry
Violent
Afraid
Self absorbed
Greedy
Apathetic
Complacent
Lazy
Corrupt
Isolationistic

 

OR
Would you prefer a list like:
Courageous
Noble
Generous
Respectful
Compassionate
Peaceful
Productive
Industrious
Honoring
Diligent

 

It would be tempting to lay the responsibility for the outcome on politicians, the media, corporations and government,
BUT,
You guessed it:  The real choice is in the hands of each voting citizen.

How will you vote?
