Dignity and perseverance leads to citizenship

While many are under the impression, the country is headed in the wrong direction, it’s easy to say the least, that direction is a nation of lawlessness, which is confused with the notion of justice, but completely ignores justice per say.

The three week amnesty hunger protest in the nation’s capitol has ended with a stalemate, but has picked up some steam around the country, but not as anticipated. Some activists, in some cities has picked up the cause and staged their own hunger strikes, but not for three weeks, but for only a day.

In Houston, there was a amnesty fast, but hardly worth mentioning and as such, it’s almost as if it never happened. Be that as it may though, this lawlessness that’s spreading around the country isn’t confined to the illegal immigrant population, but rather with elected lawmakers who joined in on these hunger protests.

Are lawmakers allowed to protest the very laws, they are sworn to uphold and defend?

The religious community has even gotten involved in this lawlessness and they wonder why the government is actively and constantly stripping away their rights to religious freedoms. It’s still well known, you can’t serve two masters, you’ll cling to one and discard the other.

Maybe if these advocates turned their attention to all those who are quietly becoming citizens, there would be no need for going without food, water and protesting in the streets. Maybe if these advocates could stress the importance of, let’s say, Suke-Haan Cheng.

Cheng’s journey to America began in China, where she migrated to America and on to Canada where she became a citizen. Afterwards, she became a ‘lawful permanent resident,’ in America and finally became a citizen. She took the oath to support the Constitution, ‘renounce and abjure absolutely and entirely all allegiance and fidelity to any foreign prince, potentate, state, or sovereignty of whom or which the applicant was before a subject or citizen...'

Cheng didn’t come to America waving her native country’s flag, looking for handouts, or protesting the country’s immigration policies. Through perseverance she eventually became that which so many around the world are waiting to become. With dignity she answered the call and it don’t get no better than that.

Teachable moment to say the least.
