COMPLETE TEXT: "CHOICES" (Front Pull-out Quoted and Bolded)

by Frank Elkins ©8-13-2017

Alt-left – Alt-right
Hate – Hate
Fight – Fight
Scream – Scream
Strike – Strike
Alt-left – Alt-right.

If you're not outraged,
you're not paying attention –
To the ugly decline
of our nation's dissension.

It is not about statues,
who have no voice –
We are the ones
now making the choice:

A choice to share,
a choice to shout –
A choice to consider,
what our choice is about.

A choice to listen,
a choice to scream –
An American nightmare,
or an American dream?

A choice to unite,
or a choice to divide –
One nation under God,
or bloody national suicide?

To fall from our weakness,
or rise to our worth –
To strengthen our Union,
or depart from this earth.

What we learn from Heather is paramount –
The choices we make, are the choices that count.
