We are Explorer’s, that is who we are. Before North America became known as the United States and Canada, it was an area of unknown, people of other Countries had no idea of what was here, so a few set voyage to come here and explore, to see what this uncharted territory had to offer? Some set sail and became lost as their navigation wasn’t like that of today, yet others made it here and then went back to report of their findings.
North America……. the uncharted land, yes today that may be a hard pill to swallow? But do your homework and really learn of this great Country in which you live. When the first Explorer’s came here, they found that there were people living here, they are known to us today as the American Indian. These Indians roamed this land freely and went about their business without worrying of what they were doing, or did they have to worry about offending anybody? It is us the White man that came to their area and forced ourselves and our ways on them. this was the start of what changed North America forever.
To some they may say they made this land better than it ever was, yes America did change and yes there are a lot of great changes that made life better for all, but yet when you think about it, there were a lot of changes that made all our lives very difficult and in some way, made it worse than it ever was. A lot of what happened back then, still stands tall today and the biggest part that hurts us all the most, is the stepping on each others shoe shine, the pushing of your ways and beliefs on each other, When you look back at the Indian way, true maybe they did everything the hard way, but that was the way they did it and they were very happy with it. Now instead of roaming the land freely, now we have to watch where we step and cut through all the drama and red tape that is around us today.
Drama……… that is for another blog. with all the drama today we are afraid of offending each other, so we stay within ourselves and can’t even say a simple hello to each other anymore? God says “love thy neighbor”, within our Society today we don’t even talk to our neighbor, let alone wave a simple hello to them. This is how much this planet has changed since before the time that North America wasn’t even a Country as we see it today.
Everything around us including us as Humans will change, it is how we accept it and how we react to it, that determines who we become and how we walk our paths along this journey called life. Life may throw us many curve balls, yes we may swing and miss quite a few of them, but when we stay strong and true to ourselves, we will hit the curve balls out of the park, a lot more than we give ourselves credit for. Yes we are and always will be explorers, even though as we look around and think there is nothing else to explore, think again the exploring will never end, we will always have challenges, which we will have to explore, in order to be able to walk our paths along this journey, in peace and to be better and stronger as we move forward always.
” the exploring may never end, but we as Humans explore and that is who we are”
” to move forward in life, you always need to explore new roads and paths, all while staying true to who you are”
