Proud to be an American?

Mr. Obama spoke of “a clear and strong commitment to the security of Israel: our strongest ally in the region and its only established democracy.” Quoth he: “That will always be my starting point.”Source

Oh God.

I stopped reading, watching, and listening to the news
For so long, I forgot why I did.
Now I remember.

I’m… distraught.

Our support of a horrid regime has planted a dreadful seed.
If you don’t know why the Israeli government is horrid,
Google things like Israel is evil or Israel massacres.

I have always been a nationalist.
And have defended America against citizens and foreigners.

As disturbing facts filtered into my little world.
I cast them off; onto an old man named Bush.

Ecstasy was mine when Barack Obama was elected president.
Although I quickly spouted All politicians are just liars to others,
Deep down I believed him.
I believed in change.
I believed in “Yes, we can”.

I don’t believe anymore.

But, where can anyone turn?

The news in every country is filled with awful things.
Humans continually finding ways to cause harm.
Harm to the Earth, the animals, themselves, and each other.

I miss my little world.
My 25-mile radius world.

Ignorance is bliss.
