“We the People. . . “

This morning is full of “divisive words” as a result of the outcome of election of our 45th president of the United States.

“We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.”

I see it differently. I see it, that this is now the time to come together. More than ever. I see it as that this is what it is meant to be and what is meant to happen. I see it as a call to commitment rather than apathy. I see it as a call of community rather than disagreement or “us versus them”. I see it as a call for communication rather than criticism.

Let me explain the call to commitment. Do you know who your Senator is? Who your Congressman or Congresswoman is? I bet you don’t. When was the last time you reached out to them? Probably never. If you want to have a say in what is going on in the House – you certainly can call, e-mail and write to your own representatives of your district. Are you aware that they make the time to visit their district? That is the time for you to get to know them, and for you to share your thoughts, concerns and support in the White House. Now is the time to step up your commitment to the White House – to your community – to your future. I know who my Senator and Congressman is of my District is in MY STATE. I have made the commitment – now, it’s your turn.

Let me explain the call of community. We’re all brothers and sisters on this beautiful, abundant planet Earth. I do not care if you are African American, Purple or Blind, we are brothers and sisters. According to my God, you are. It is our responsibility to care for one another and for this planet earth. In my backyard, I am making efforts to get to know my community and as a “sister’ I care for those who are in my community and will do what I can within my resources, my power, and my prayers to help. I would only hope that they would help me when I make the call. No more of this “us versus them” – there is none of that up in the Heavenly Gates. So, let’s have more of a community down here on this earthly terrain.

This planet is the only planet we have. It is certainly the most beautiful planet – the times I have spent behind the motorcycle certainly has shown me the beauty of this world we live in. We don’t respect it enough. Let’s explore the new technology and thoughts that are out there that will protect and endure this planet as well as help take care of our future generations.

The call for communication; we certainly need to communicate better. Now is the time for better communication rather than criticism. Rather than complain about the government. My suggestion is now – say something. No more standing by on the sidelines. Educate yourself, reach out to the representatives in the White House, and communicate your concerns and collaborate towards a solution. If it is something that you are not happy with that is happening in your own backyard – I say the same, do your homework,, reach out to the city council, communicate and collaborate towards a solution. Rather than complain, criticize, reach out instead. Communicate and collaborate.

It took 116 days to write the Constitution of the United States.

I will end this with this from the preamble that is from our Constitution . . . again. .  .

We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.”

Now is the time, more than ever, we need to act like “We the People. . . “
