THE PRICE OF FREEDOM & THE REMAINING OUTSTANDING DEBT.

WHILE I PRAY THAT YOU ALL HAVE ENJOYED OUR NATIONAL HOLIDAY AND I WHOLEHEARTEDLY UNDERSTAND THE CONCEPT OF INDEPENDENCE DAY, I ALSO UNDERSTAND THE ACTUAL PRICE OF FREEDOM. IT IS IRREFUTABLE THAT RACISM ONCE EXISTED (AND PERSISTS TO EXIST) IN THE MILITARY. HOWEVER, RACISM IS A STATE OF MIND.  RACISM IS TAUGHT; A CHILD IS NOT BORN TO HATE. A CHILD IS  TAUGHT TO HATE. UNFORTUNATELY, BECAUSE OF THIS, RACISM WILL CONTINUE TO EXIST WITHIN THE MILITARY, THE CLASSROOMS, THE COURTROOMS, AT THE WORKPLACE, AND ETC.) THE ONLY CURE  FOR RACISM IS BLINDNESS/AMNESIA. HOWEVER, HATE EXTENDS FAR BEYOND RACISM BECAUSE THERE ARE MANY FORMS OF HATE OUTSIDE OF SKIN COLOR (I.E. HATE TOWARD WOMEN,  HOMOSEXUALS,  SHORT PEOPLE, TALL PEOPLE, THIN PEOPLE, OBESE PEOPLE, PEOPLE WITH BLOND HAIR, REDHEADS, AND ETC.)

ALL FORMS OF HATE ARE ROOTED IN IGNORANCE AND INSECURITY. THE ONLY CURE FOR IGNORANCE IS EDUCATION AND SELF-AWARENESS
