The United States of America is a great country. It is founded on the promise that all people are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness. Do you have a “owners” or “renters” mentality when it comes to holding the United States accountable for this promise? If you have a “renters” mentality for this country, you may sit back and wait for change to reach your desired outcome. If you have a “owners” mentality for this country, you more than likely put forth actions that impact actual change. Do you often find your group portrayed as a “renter” of this country, portrayed as someone who is only given the right to Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness by law as opposed to someone who is endowed these rights by their Creator? If so, remember that we the people, all own the responsibility to ensure we hold our country accountable for keeping the promise. By exercising this responsibility, we lay claim in the ownership of this country.
