What it Means to be an American

This gentleman has some powerful and moving words. He who feels it, knows it.

Terrorism is not about religious extremism. Terrorism is about fear and control. It is about concocting a 'bogeyman' to keep us fearful and compliant. Many, many folks have stood up in the face of oppression and tyranny in the past, so that we might live free. Are you going to be told what to believe?

I chose to place faith in humanity - each and every human being on this earth, rather than the institutions that label and segregate us. There are no 'illegal aliens' - we are all children of the earth.

May the Peace of Endlessness, which passes all understanding, be always with you.
