Thomas Paine wrote on 14 February 1776, “We have it in our power to begin the world over again. A situation, similar to the present, hath not happiness since the days of Noah until now. The birthday of a new world is at hand.”
There were no finer words even put to paper, than that of the Constitution of the United States. There are but two guidelines that provide the roadmap to our existence, that being the word of God and those within the United States Constitution.
The Preamble of the Text of the Constitution reads:
“We the People of the United States in order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure the domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.”
This summary will focus on just one word, the fourth word, that being ‘of’. ‘Of’ carries with it true allegiance, dedication, protection, beliefs, honor, devotion and love of country……OUR Country.
It demonstrates a single pledge and focus to only America.
Within the word ‘of’, we take solace, comfort, protections and confidence of a perfect union. Each day, it is the citizens ‘of’ America, to perform their respective duty to seek justice, work for domestic tranquility and protect all of that within our borders, seek to improve our way of life and to preserve our natural rights of liberty for the growing posterity for those people ‘of’ America.
There can be no divided loyalty, no other foreign laws applied, and no external force allowed to impede the American spirit and legacy.
