No One Should Be Above The Law In America

At the very core of our Nation,
we cannot relent from the principle
that no one is above the law.

Without this, we are nothing.
Without this, we are no longer equal.
Without this, we are no longer free.

It is not cost to the individual that matters.
There will always be someone else to carry on.
Such is the way of a land with no king.

The cost to the Nation is what does matter.
It matters to all of us.
We just celebrated the 4th of July.

This week,
We defile our history.
We cheapen our present.
We lose our tomorrow.

This is not about left or right,
this is about right and wrong.
