In Mark Twain’s biography is the following: “There is no
such thing as a new idea. It is impossible. We simply
take a lot of old ideas and put them into a sort of
mental kaleidoscope. We give them a turn and they
make new and curious combinations. We keep on
turning and making new combinations indefinitely,
but they are the same old pieces of colored glass
that have been in use through all the ages.”
Why bring this up now? Because we have become
complacent when we should be vigilant. We have
become a divided country when we should unite, and
because many have let apathy and ignorance rule the
We have all seen how hope and change works and
some even believe us better today than before. But
these people are among the few who believe they
will never experience violence in their lives. They
honestly believe bad things don’t happen to good
people, or at least people they know.
And we have those who do not, and will not,
acknoledge that there are terrorists among us. Who
would kill us without a thought.
Of course we can’t forget those who honestly
believe they have rights that were never granted in
our Constitution. They believe they have the right
to not be offended.
We have people who are here illegally constantly
whining about their imaginary rights being
violated and others who believe they should get a
paycheck for just being so precious.
But none of these ideas are new. Neither is the
idea these people have that we are either for them
or against them. We fear if some of us don’t wake
up soon it will too late to save our great country.
