In the Star Spangled Banner it says " For the land of the free and the home of the brave.'' I think this is nonsense because in our society, we are not free. Everything is set up to keep us all enslaved, to keep our minds in limited spaces and hold us back from our full potential. Things like the Star Spangled Banner or the Pledge Of Allegiance was written to blind us so we don't focus on what's really important. Also, this isn't the home of the brave because you can't be brave and speak up...everyone is so scared and everyone remains silent and abide to this world that was created for us to not have power, and anyone that does speak up ends up being killed.
I think the world needs to start focusing on themselves more and we would become more aware and more powerful. If we stop paying attention to what's thrown in our face and start observing everything that is being hidden we wouldn't be as blind as we are. This includes spending time alone, meditating, and taking some time off of social media. We need to start connecting with ourselves more and I believe we would be better people and we would understand our lives more and different situations we go through. A lot of people allow someone else in this world to tell them who they are or what's wrong with them and after being labeled this becomes the person's reality. If we pledged to ourselves instead of pledging to our country we would have less problems because we are taking time out to focus on what's really important which is ourselves.
