Dear General Washington –
We’ve come to a point in the history of our nation when our people’s lives have been pulled apart, (literally rent asunder), by poverty and oppression as our feet stand in this nation for which so many have paid so dear a price.
Freedom, equality and the democracy of opportunity have long been denied in our great nation to all but a few. Our voices are rarely heard by those who claim to hold the seats to represent us in the Halls of Congress. Justice for all has been so far away from so many for so long that most cannot muster the belief to even consider it possible in America anymore.
How would we not be consumed by this, both as individuals and as a nation to honor the founding principles of our Constitution for all, even today in the midst of this failure of our national interests?
