Break the Chains: Ours, then Theirs! – by Steve McCann

Shake Off the Manacles that Enfetter you, my friend,

And those you love as well.

Give those gyves away!

Throw off the Hobbling Inertia that Narrows the Gate before us impassable.

Hobbles are for horses, not for humans.

Life, liberty and pursuit of Happiness lie just beyond the gate…

Inviting…Taunting, Tempting, Tantalizing.

Why stand we here idle?

Have we no mind, no will, no spirit?

Are we so very weak?

Is life worth so little…

Are our lives, and the lives of our loved ones, worth so little…

As to be purchased at the cost of chains and slavery?

What is life in chains?

What is life in slavery?

What is life disjoined from liberty?

Let us All stand tall! Let us All make some noise!

Let us All do something together.

Let us All do
