America, once a state of mind – now in a state of mindlessness.

A STATE OF MIND

By Al Garcia

America, once a state of mind – now in a state of mindlessness. 

To once have felt the passion of the American experience, resonating the voice of truth, of hope and empathy for the world.  To once have held the torch that lit the world.  To once have been the bright victory for the vanquished and defeated. 

America, my country, my sweet land of liberty.  America, where freedom rang from sea to shining sea.  America, whose patriots dreamed of a glimmering city on a hill, undimmed by the passage of time or the treachery of men. 

America, once upon a time . . . a wonderful state of mind.
