See it.

Respect snub


Live it.

In the sixties, hippies grew long hair and wore torn clothing to pretend to be poor. They took mind-blowing drugs and rebelled against authority. Today most of them, who didn't die from drug overdose, appear to have adjusted to life in America. Some even rose to become government leaders, even President, to become the ones they profaned when they were young. But their cause was not vindicated and their hypocrisy will forever be associated with their actions.

Today there are very few people who do not protest something and then benefit from what they protest. Professional athletes seek notoriety and attention from dishonoring the American flag. In other countries, their behavior would be a reason to deport or publicly execute them. America tolerates such behavior to the point of almost giving them hero status, calling it a protected right of freedom. Most Americans, like me however, tire of supporting the process by giving any attention to these pampered snowflakes and the media that promotes them.

Pray it.

The only vindication I seek, God, is for You to be pleased with me.
