A native of his land is bound by his heart. Where we come from, our place of origin, the great motherland lay the beginning foundations into making us who we are. A person’s heritage is a sacred tradition followed only by those who understand its secret language. A nation must be ruled by a leader who walked the path the people currently tread, who understands the secret dialect. Remembering the emptiness in the pit of their stomach every night, the remaining lacerations on their body from rival gangs, and the endless rows of bodies of family and friends left in the streets. Living in a constant state of fear and anger strengthened that one person to step up and make a change, starting a revolution. Striving to make a difference in the lives of those around them, feeling their pain and wanting to put a stop to the problems plaguing their nation. A nation needs a leader that not only understand what the people need, but has lived through the struggle and will fight for their people’s rights.
There’s a clear difference between those that understand the people and those who were the people. Foreigners who take charge of nation that don’t understand the nation’s history, language, and values, is destined for failure. One may think its “unfair” to not allow unrelated leaders to take charge of a nation, but just how successful are those diverse leaders? Take a look back in history, Russia, Great Britain, France, Austria, Italy, Prussia, the Ottoman Empire, the Holy Roman Empire, all had successful leaders bred from the same nation. If there is a disruption in the social dynamics of a nation, a leader unable to meet the needs of the people, nationalism is inevitable. No matter what the circumstances are, keeping a nation together requires a preservation of its heritage.
America, land of the free and home of the brave. Our nation, made up of three main ideas, life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. America is often referred to as a great mixing pot of cultures and ethnicities, introducing new ideas and perspectives as the years go on. There is one change that will never take place, our heritage, how we got started, and the principles that brought us to where we are today. Remembering who we are and how we were brought up must never be forgotten. Our president is responsible for preserving our rights, values, and history. We, as a nation, decide who we want to represent us as our president based on common values, background, and viewpoints. We elect the person who relates to who we are individually and how that person will help us as a nation. Appealing to the needs of the people can only be understood by those who know the language they speak.
A person’s heritage is sacred, never meant to be manipulated or tainted in any way. He who understands the sounds of his land, the rhythm of each heartbeat, and footstep on each path understands what they must do to preserve their nation. United we stand, together we fall, joint together through each and every brawl. We fight the same fight and stand together strong, a united nation, one and for all.
