America the Free?

Why does our society try to hold us back? We are Americans. Have we forgotten what that means? In the days of our founding fathers, it meant freedom. Freedom to become better than what is expected. Freedom to learn from our ancestors mistakes. Freedom to acquire the knowledge to make our own decisions. Freedom to express ourselves. Freedom to fight for our beliefs. Where has that Freedom gone? We are now in a form of slavery. We are oppressed. The oppression is of our own making. Our school system is teaching our children not to think for themselves, but to follow the standard, which happens to be substandard nowadays. As adults of this type of education, we go through life just doing the bare minimum we can get away with. Anyone who tries to climb up and out of the standard is ridiculed. The rare few who gain the knowledge to control their own destinies end up working for the system or corporation and then are told what they can or can not do. Our children today are not given the chance to succeed. They are taught what society wants them to learn. They are told what society wants them to know. Laziness is the new normal. We are only hurting ourselves. This a sad time for Americans. We, as Americans need to take control of our own lives and choices. We shouldn’t just be happy to exist. We should try to make a difference. Not to society, or to some stranger, or the world. We need to make a difference in ourselves. Life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness is what our Founding Fathers wanted for Americans. What kind of life do you have? Is it what you wanted? What type of liberty do you have? What ties you down? Are you Happy? Do not what is expected. Do what you feel is right for yourself. Live the life we as Americans were given by our Founding Fathers. Strive to live each day in the pursuit of happiness. Your own happiness. Not what society tells you that you must have to be happy. Only when we as Americans choose to hold ourselves accountable for our own education will we again have the FREEDOM our Founding Fathers fought for us to have. That is when we can be called PROUD AMERICANS!
