Daily Prompt; New Internet Order
All the world’s…
http://dailypost.wordpress.com/2013/10/03/daily-prompt-leader/, DP, Daily Prompt
All the world’s countries have decided that the Internet itself needs a government. Your country asks you to run for Prime Minister of the ‘Net — do you accept? If so, what will your platform be?
Photographers, artists, poets: show us LEADER.
I don’t normally make it a habit to discuss any politics. For one reason, I don’t know enough to be outspoken. For another reason I believe what I believe and I don’t want someone tearing that apart for the sake of argument.
The more you let a big corporation into your personal life, the more I feel like we are having our souls ripped out of us.
When and if we ever go back to a country that is for the people, by the people, one nation under God, I may change my views.
Now we are engaged in a great civil war, testing whether that nation, or any nation so conceived and so dedicated, can long endure. We are met on a great battle-field of that war. We have come to dedicate a portion of that field, as a final resting place for those who here gave their lives that that nation might live. It is altogether fitting and proper that we should do this.
But, in a larger sense, we can not dedicate — we can not consecrate — we can not hallow — this ground. The brave men, living and dead, who struggled here, have consecrated it, far above our poor power to add or detract. The world will little note, nor long remember what we say here, but it can never forget what they did here. It is for us the living, rather, to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced. It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us — that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion — that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain — that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom — and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.
These are my own opinions I express. I am not trying to change your views or your beliefs.
Daily Prompt; I Pledge Allegiance
Are you patriotic?…
Are you patriotic? What does being patriotic mean to you?
Photographers, artists, poets: show us COUNTRY.
I can’t speak for anyone else
I can only speak for me
How lucky I am to live
In the land of the living free.
Where the mighty stand so strong
Where we have choice to say each word
Without worry of saying it wrong.
Free to roam around
Swimming in schools
Or crawling upon the ground.
To believe in what we wish
To pray to my dear God
And live with no anguish.
To live in harmony
To have a voice
I can be free to be me.
And truly blessed
To be living and free
What change, big or small, would you like your blog to make in the world?
Wow, this question took me back in my seat! A chance to make a change for everyone living in this big world? Does this mean this can be bigger than holding the President’s office? Bigger than the government? Wow, what a chance of a life time.
The first thing I would do is change people’s views, getting them to rid the thought of, me first, and changing it to, working for and with the people. The world in my view is still a great world, but changes have happened and we all don’t think alike any longer, so this would be a must.
The second thing I would change is God. God must be made first in each and every living mind. To realize we need God in our country, in our hearts and minds, is a very important thing to me.
Next, let us come together and settle the wars and frictions around the world. Let us find ways to get along and to share what we have with others. Let us take the word greed out of our vocabulary, and bring love and a bigger peace than we have ever had before.
Next, I would like to bring family back to the meaning of family. What is family? A unit of people living together, being there for each other, helping each other, lend a listening ear, and providing a helping hand, and yes, sometimes needing to provide a tough love, so that we all grow to realize adulthood and all of the challenges it can bring to our own personal lives.
You are sitting back laughing as you read this aren’t you? You are telling me that I am dreaming and living in the past. It is alright, with me, if you do not agree with my thoughts. I believe in the memories I have, of a close family and a school where the first thing I did after making our presence known in class, was to say The Pledge Of Allegiance.
I remember having to help tend gardens so that I knew I was going to have food on our tables during the hard, cold winters. I remember earning privileges to have a bicycle, and then a car. Nothing was given, all was earned.
I remember my parents buying what they thought I needed for school, and if I wanted extras, I needed to have a part-time job, to get these. Respect was taught at home, and carried with me through-out my adult years.
Yes, I may be asking for the impossible, but this prompt is I can make a change, and this is what I would wish to happen.
These are my thoughts only, and I, in no way, am trying to change your own views and thoughts. Have a great day!
