A NEW BIRTH of FAITH – in AMERICA – on 9/11

A NEW BIRTH OF FAITH — IN AMERICA !

(upon our honor – in honor of 9/11 )

Let me introduce myself…
Look at your family; your neighbor
let’s all look at ourselves in the mirror.
What do we see?
We see what we are – ALL Americans.

Our Friend spoke of CHANGE.
He wants us to remember the proverb politicians love – “a new broom sweeps clean”.
And, he thinks that’s enough.

But he forgets to tell you that that’s only half the proverb.
It goes on – “but an old one gets in the corners.”

Well, let me tell you about this “old broom” – the American Center.
We speak of both:
CHANGE – and – RETURN
We – you and me
Modern America
Are yearning for a change…
which is to return – to re-learn
for ourselves – for our well-being – and for our success.

And we all know what it is –
it’s the old truths !
IT IS A NEW BIRTH OF FAITH – IN AMERICA – IN OURSELVES AS AMERICANS.

What is America to me? to us?
Well, it’s not liberal; and it’s not conservative.
It’s both conservative and liberal.
America is OUR unique experiment in living.
We are peoples from all over the world; from all nations of the world.
And we have mutually chosen – to live together.
We have mutually chosen –
TO BE AMERICANS.

A PEOPLE OF FAITH

FAITH – WE KNOW IT.
WE WERE A PEOPLE OF FAITH – ONCE; AND MANY TIMES.

We believed powerfully – “we hold these truths….”

FAITH – that “all men are created equal”.

FAITH – in freedom to believe:
that great Protest that each individual human being can stand
in direct personal relationship to (his) God.
– in a new world – “give me your masses yearning to breathe free.”
– in a City on a Hill – we are the light unto the nations.

FAITH – faith in ourselves as Americans.

– we put it all on the line – once; and many times.
– “we mutually pledge to each other –
our lives,
our fortunes,
and our sacred honor.”
– “live free or die.”

Yes, faith: our fortunes, our lives; our sacred honor.

AUDACITY TO BE PROUD OF AMERICA !

IT IS IN RETURN TO OUR AMERICAN ETERNAL TRUTHS
THAT WE HAVE CHANGE !

Change – to correct our Friend, CHANGE is the
AUDACITY TO BE PROUD OF AMERICA !

Change – Our Friend assumes the cloak of Apologist.
But it’s like he forgot – AMERICANS’ DEEDS.


Americans’ deeds of Change – the love of our Constitution that gave us
the Commandment to create civil equality.
Americans’ deeds of Change – the love of our Declaration that gave us
the courage and strength to admit a wrong.
Americans’ deeds of Change – the belief in the essential goodness of America
that gave us the courage and strength to CHANGE IT.


BE PROUD . HAVE FAITH IN OURSELVES AS AMERICANS.
We have done what no other peoples in history have done.

CHANGE BY RETURNING

We mutually pledge to each other –
“Governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers
from the consent of the governed”;
– AND NOT THE OTHER WAY ‘ROUND.

We mutually pledge to each other – our fortunes.
WORK
– it’s time to put America back to work.
-and the time is now.

-And how do we do it? (to paraphrase)
– IT’S PRODUCTION, stupid !
– making things.
– it’s not just services, services.
– And it’s business that puts people back to work.
Small business, big business, any kind of business, but the business of producing things.
-and the time is now, now, now !

We mutually pledge to each other –
– it’s time to free America from foreign domination by oil
– we will harness nature’s renewable gifts
– and the time is now.

We mutually pledge to each other – our lives
– do no harm to each other
– the right of the people to be secure in their homes.
– we will save our homes
– and the time is now.

-the right of the people to be secure in their homes.
– we will save our kids from drugs.
– and the time is now.

We mutually pledge to each other – our sacred honor:
– TO KNOW THAT THERE ARE NO RIGHTS WITHOUT RESPONSIBILITIES.
– IT IS ONLY WHEN WE TAKE UP RESPONSIBILITIES FOR OURSELVES AND OUR COMMUNITY THAT WE UPHOLD RIGHTS.
– IT IS ONLY IN THE EXERCISE OF RESPONSIBILITY AND RIGHTS THAT WE UPHOLD OUR FREEDOM.
– and that time is always.
– and that time is now.

We mutually pledge to each other –
– our right to live in peace and security
– and banish Islamic Imperialism
– and the time is now.

We mutually pledge to each other – to honor
“The brave men, living and dead, who struggled here, have consecrated America.”
We – you and I
We – America
We – Americans
Know that Change comes by a return to our eternal truths
– To our faith in ourselves as Americans

So We together, let us resolve – that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of FAITH .
– and that government of the people, by the people, for the people; and our life, liberty and happiness shall not perish from the earth.

We’re the American Center.
These “old words” tell it best. Every generation must re-live them.
what you see is me
I am you
What we are – is Americans.

(This is offered in humility & pleasure to all Politicians, left and right, to take a new and honest Pledge of Allegiance to a NEW BIRTH OF FAITH – IN AMERICA !
Please.)
