War Cry

In going to war the people of The Earth have done good.
We Americans fought for freedom from tyranny in The Revolution.
The Allies were victorious against Adolf Hitler
and his sinister plans for world domination.
This was done with war, and a great number of people were killed.
In going to war the people of The Earth have done good,
yet not all wars were initiated for the purposes of justice,
nor was every commander a man of truth and integrity.
In going to war we have sometimes murdered the innocent.
We have dropped many bombs, and we have decimated cities.
We will no longer use these tools with which we have built nothing.

AMERICA will challenge her enemies to The Duel of Ideas,
and defeat them with shear intelligence, and unstoppable progress.
We will no longer use death or destruction to achieve any end,
we will no longer identify ourselves with horrible bloodshed,
and these things will be relegated to the pages of history.

THE WARS OF TOMORROW
will be the greatest minds in fierce debate,
THE WARS OF TOMORROW
will be fought in the fields of philosophy,
and in the laboratories of science,
and in libraries and museums.
THE WARS OF TOMORROW
will we waged without weapons,
and the great heroes shall wield ideals.

THIS IS AMERICA,
so speak freely, as it is your right by law.
THIS IS AMERICA,
so worship or pray in the manner of your choosing.
THIS IS AMERICA,
where no King shall ever reign,
FOR IT WAS WRITTEN IN THE FOUNDING DOCUMENTS,
and Americans shall be free forever.

AMERICA will rise to the occasion,
and Americans will always bear The Banner of Freedom,
amidst whatever terror or fear we should ever face.

THIS IS AMERICA,
so embark upon the long voyage and behold The Statue of Liberty.

THIS IS AMERICA,
and Americans shall be free forever.
