Got 15 Minutes to Save Our Country?
0 have signed. Let’s get to 200!
Dear Respondents and Change.org Members:
As most of us innately sense, our country, the United States of America, is at a critical juncture in its history. We were created by our Founding Fathers as a model form of government based on all the best ideas and ideals known to mankind. Under our carefully balanced tripartite system, we have been a stable beacon of hope for millions of people all over the world for well over 200 years.
If you, as I do, love this amazing country of ours and desire to preserve our carefully structured form of government for future generations, I have a simple request. It is time for all our citizens and residents, “We the People,” to re-focus our attention on the founding principles and other related and necessary complementary ideals.
By spending just 15 minutes a day focusing your thoughts on the following ideals, you can be part of a powerful movement to change our country’s trajectory. You can do it anywhere you are – in your car, in the shower, while at lunch, sitting in a boring meeting or while standing in line at a store. It's that easy. If people ask you what you are doing, simply smile and tell them and ask them to join you. This simple act of collective focus (whether you prefer to call it the “quiet strength of meditation,” the “power of prayer,” or just the “goodwill of well-intended people”) will shift the dynamics of our country’s path forward.
Here are 15 crucial ideals that are either core founding principles of our country or are necessary to preserve our timeless (and truly brilliant) form of government as handed down by our Founding Fathers to each of us, its current stewards:
Rule of Law
The Common Good
If you agree that these are basic ideals that should continue to govern our country’s future, simply sign this petition. In doing so, you commit to spend one minute per ideal (only 15 minutes each day) simply focusing your thoughts, hopes and dreams on each ideal at noon in your respective time zone. That’s all I am asking you to do if you love this country. If you can’t spare 15 minutes, then pick the 5 ideals that resonate the most with you, and give 5 minutes a day. It will matter.
You can engage in this simple civic duty of support, ether acting alone or in concert with a group, which I encourage you to seek for support and to strengthen our communities (calling all teachers, ministers and civic leaders!) Again, it matters not whether you call it meditation, prayer or just wishing for the best – our collective focus on these ideals will start the shift that is needed to bring our country back to its rightful moral foundation built upon the highest ideals mankind can offer.
If you believe in this country and the power of a people united in thought and intention to make positive changes, then join me in focusing our collective thoughts on these ideals and in expecting (yea, demanding, via your signature on this petition) our leaders (ALL of our elected or appointed representatives – federal, state and local - and our elected or appointed judges, all respective of Party affiliation) to think, speak and act in accordance with them.
We are all in this together. Thank you for joining me.
