I have been thinking about all this violence and race nonsense ripping our country apart and I have a little story to tell everyone.
Maybe then they will get it.
They were subjects of the king of England.
They built cities, towns, businesses, farms and settled the land, all for the benefit of the king.
The kings of England ruled over the colonies and garnered great wealth off the backs of the colonists.
Then later, a Caribbean ship carrying African slaves was intercepted and the slaves were brought to America, on orders of the king.
The commoner was also a slave, with a little less restriction.
The king took the fruits of everyone's labor.
They didn't like being subjects, or the fact there were slaves, so they got together and came up with a plan to change all of it.
Guns were a way of life.
If you didn't hunt, you didn't eat, but they were also very important as a means of defense from criminals....
Finally, the king got angry enough to send troops to America to confiscate the guns and to quell the rebellion.
One of their most controversial statements was "All men are created equal".
People wanted them dead for saying such a thing.
Some still do.
Now think about it.
It took over 100 years for the Colonists to free themselves, before they could free the slaves too.
They had help from a whole bunch of white people .
It took time, but we all did it and we did it together.
We even had a war that was primarily about it.
Now though, there are people who are trying to tear us apart.
They want to take us back to those days where we didn't trust each other.
Sure we have work to do but we have to do it together, or what good is it?
Let's pull it together.
