Recently in my efforts to understand the declining quality of humanity – I have not seen much to be positive about. Most people in the United States continue to have their world revolve around “Dancing with the Stars”, “what can I get that makes me look important”, and a total disregard of what should be truly cherished in life. “Patriotism” for many means nothing and is lacking in much of the population. The unity felt by so many after 9/11 is all but gone and a sever deeply divides this country.
But……I just saw a glimmer of hope!
I came across a young teenager named Keeleigh S. Utt. She is proud American who loves this country and like I is concerned for its future. As part of her description on Twitter she states, “Wake up America, Lady Liberty is crying.” So true.
She not only is making an impact on Twitter but has a blog where she is spreading the truth. On – It’s Time for a Tea Party – she discusses current events and her opinion on a variety of topics.
Here is an excerpt from a recent posting on the problem with illegal immigrants – and children – pouring across our southern border:
“I hate that people do not realize that children are illegal immigrants. No matter the age, situation, background, status, or characteristics if one comes to America without proper documentation, they are illegal. Everyone. It is unfair to us to allow those who do not in just for who they are. Laws are laws, and they are meant to be followed, no matter who you are. I believe we are losing this mindset as a nation, and we are quickly becoming where we ignore the laws. I think it is sad that our legislation has become pointless. Perhaps if the leaders of our country would follow them, everyone else would fall in line. “
Finding her is a glimmer of hope as so many of todays youth are – much like the rest of America – caught up in themselves and cannot fathom the first thought of “country”. I am sure there are more out there. Lord knows we need them.
It is youth like Keeleigh that are the hope for the future.
