Whether gold is found in Ghana, Sierra Leone, or the United States, its value remains the same. Its location does not determine its value. Humanity has inestimable worth regardless of geographical location and/or national existence. The entire human race is made up of particles of gold equal in value and deserving of honor and a protected life.
Hidden in each individual is potential waiting to be released as contribution to its society, culture, and nation. That potential is dependent on access to education, equal opportunity, and a culture of honor to create an atmosphere for it to flourish. When nations suppress human potential of its citizens by restricting freedoms and denying access to good education, they are impeding the progress of their country by imprisoning the potential contained within their people.
Gold does not appear automatically. It must be mined and excavated. Governments must understand their role in protecting their citizen’s freedoms and put forth effort in all areas to insure the golden potential of its people are being mined and processed into contribution.
When human rights are violated, then the potential of another Bill Gates, scientific breakthrough, medical cure, etc., are terminated and the gold of their contribution will forever remained buried beneath the societal earth of that nation.
Let’s have freedom for all people and have respect for each other’s human rights creating the perpetual cultural atmosphere of honor where everyone can contribute making (our) nation great and giving it a voice in the world.
