    Ours to lose

    Our American democracy is withering like a once beautiful rose now neglected, thirsting for the life-saving water of our “better nature.” Without careful tending it will silently die, leaving its inhabitants stranded in the garden of our memory never again to celebrate freedom and the pursuit of happiness.

    Should we stand by allowing the tenets of our constitution, the very soul of our national being, to be used against its trusting people by those having an agenda of hate and the unquenchable thirst for absolute power?

    No, we cannot! Our democracy is more precious than gold; yet ours to lose.
