Hubby Style: United We Stand, Divided We Fall



TSHIRT: 1776 United c/o // SHORTS: J. Crew Factory // WATCH: Apple // SHOES: Nike

Today's post is a guest post by my hubby! He has such an on-fire passion for our nation and I asked him to write for y'all on current issues today. Please note that this is not a negative blog and I do not intend to stir up any emotions or to cause arguments! Happy reading!

"United we stand, divided we fall" 
This phrase speaks volumes about the true American way of life. This statement and "E Pluribus Unum" constantly remind us that although we are all individually different, when we stand together, we are one. It is a concept that many feel has disappeared in today's society. Somewhere along our path this fire has faded. The unity of the American people that kept the fire of liberty burning has diminished. 

What happened to it? There is no easy answer to this question. However, I like to explain it as a personal experience. Everyone at some point in their life gets overwhelmed. We constantly try to get out and help others. We tend to take on huge challenges and get so focused on tomorrow that we forget today. We are so focused on projects and other things around us that we forget about ourselves. When you do this for so long you lose a small part of yourself. We forget who we are and where we came from.

That is what has happened to us. In order for us to get back we need to go back to the basics. We need to rid ourselves of this erroneous notion that "it's us or them." We need to teach our fellow Americans about what this country was founded upon. Life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. 

All man were created equal! The true American way of life does not segregate. We are united together as one! America is not just a country. America is something we believe in. It is the idea of a brighter future that everyone can be a part of. Our founding fathers ignited a fire so bright that everyone around the world wants to be a part of it. We need to bring it back to life! We can bring it back to life! United we stand, divided we fall!
