Regarding 545 vs. 300,000,000 People
Charley Reese’s final column for the Orlando Sentinel
Consider the following as an opportunity to read a truly inspirational essay from a well-seasoned writer.
After reading an essay titled: 545 vs. 300,000,000 People …I became instantly inspired such that I simply must pass this man’s work on …as so many others before me have as well.
I received this essay from a friend via an E-mail which came to me this week.
It so impressed me by its sagacious simplicity that I just had to look at it in more depth.
Afterwards, I expanded my meditation and contemplation of it …conducting a Google search in which I used its title as my search parameter: “545 vs. 300,000,000 Peopleâ€
I took the liberty to post my search returns below. Please take a look at these sites. If you do, I believe that you will find …as I did; that there is …not only a wide spread acceptance and agreement of this author’s essay’s simple …yet powerful theme; there is also a spirit whose powerful appeal also speaks to reach deep into the character of the American human persona.
In this regard, I believe the essay’s strong appeal emanates from an unmistakable call to collectively take strong individual responsible action for what was intended …in purpose, to serve all Americans in making this a land a land of free opportunity in which one is free to pursue his or her happiness.
Yet, for all this, there is a certain thread of a theme throughout the essay …one of blame which …like the three fingers which point back to self …on a hand which points away from self.
And in this regard the one to blame is not the system; it is the apathetic individual.
What is the bottom line?
Americans must take more personal responsible action and become more engaged …rather than become more blame gamers in a sea awash with apathy.
