Democracy is an Action Word: Three Things Challenge #473

I have come to realize that to keep a democracy true to its intent, you can’t rest on what happened years ago. You must constantly be thoughtful, asking oneself what must I do today to ensure that no one can weaken the rights and freedoms tomorrow that people died to secure for me and for future generations.

Written for the Three Things Challenge #473 from Pensitivity 101: weak, thoughtful, tomorrow. The last few days have rocked my soul, watching the Confederate flag flown next to images of Jesus and the Cross and the American flag, symbols that are in conflict with each other. I felt the democracy tremble on its base, but I believe that it will still be standing when this craziness is past!
