We Are Not Afraid
Why should we be afraid?
If this were the case,
There would be no United States.
The founding fathers were not afraid
To face imprisonment or death;
General Washington led the Continental Army
To defeat British tyranny of America.
And if the Electoral College had not been constituted
Abraham Lincoln would not have been elected.
And if President Lincoln had been afraid
Of the plantation owners and sympathizers
And the supreme court justices;
Black Americans would still be enslaved.
And so when bullied for political belief
Remember FDR’s inaugural speech
To the Nation during the depression;
‘The only thing we have to fear, is fear itself.’
Stand up and say; “We are not afraid!”
