Protest Patriots

We’ve protested on street corners, in drive alongs, in newspapers, at city council meetings and in social media.  The causes vary and, we believe, all are for improving community and national justice.  The first amendment to our United States Constitution provides us the right to speak out.  You might not agree with our opinions. We respect you and your opinion and pray you respect ours.

Some issues that we have supported:

The causes are unending when you look around at our community, our nation, the world.  We speak up for what we believe is the right thing to do.  We expect you to do the same.  We pray to have that conversation to understand and to resolve our differences. 

Stand up against the chaos that surrounds us.  Protest but in words, thoughts, deeds—not violence, disrespect, hate. 

Our nation under the Constitution is blessed with the attribute of perpetual evolution— in order to form a more perfect Union. We can change it for the common good.

Federick Douglass declares, in his perspectives upon July 4th celebrations speech July 5, 1852, “I have said that the Declaration of Independence is the ring-bolt to the chain of your nation’s destiny; so, indeed, I regard it. The principles contained in that instrument are saving principles. Stand by those principles, be true to them on all occasions, in all places, against all foes, and at whatever cost.”
