“The freedoms you take from someone, will someday be taken from you.”
**these are just my thoughts. Sometimes a bold stance is necessary. In light of my fb being lite up with arguing I’ve just posted some thoughts.**
Taking a knee…
In light of all being said about taking a knee
these are my thoughts.
We will start with the counter argument,
“Your disrespecting those that died in war! If you done like this country leave!”
My thoughts to those arguments,
They died for all “freedoms” not just a select group of freedoms.
They died for the freedom to stand and for the freedom to kneel.
Initially a knee was never bowed in disrespect to any service men or women but rather to the direction this country is headed in.
The flag represents different things to different ethnic groups, for some it is
for some the flag is stained
for some it means something entirely different,
yet each has the freedom to voice this,
if not then we are not “free.”
But it was never about the flag, it was about the country and her injustices gone overlooked.
We have moved away from listening to reacting emotionally.
We have moved away from a man who might of had some very real, very raw concerns but no one was listening just reacting.
Anyway I will end it here.
-My freedoms and your freedoms are different and vary for each group, whether we admit that or not doesn’t change what reality is or isn’t for many.
-I believe in freedom although freedom it self is collapsing and ever changing her face. There is a time for bold stance and a time for kneeling.
-Freedom shouldn’t be about complete conformity
because many disagree with how someone exercises that freedom, what if your “freedom” is affected someday?
Is that anyway to respect those who served? If we are okay with freedom as long as it doesn’t cause discomfort to our world, is that freedom or conformity to what you feel is right?
-This was never about the flag but it has however become completely political now and the reasons will soon be lost.
-the freedoms you take from another will someday be taken from you.
-someday you will need to stand and be made to bow
-someday you will need to kneel and be made to stand.
not to fight without listening..
