My Words Are My Thoughts

Nationalism

What is your nationalism? Your nationalism is your identity. It involves actions, history, and traditions. Nationalism is also included in government and politics. Your country having the right to operate and exist on its own is nationalism. A simple definition of nationalism would be undiscriminating devotion to your nation. People believing that it is better for a country to be independent instead of acting collectively is demonstrating nationalism. You being loyal and taking pride in your country is also nationalism. Nationalism is always among people who shared a common language, culture, traditions, or history. Nationalism is very important. It shapes international politics. It has always been affected by the world.

Violence
Violence is never the answer. However, violence has it prominent place in conflicts. Society is striving to achieve ethical life.Violence begins with your emotions. Wouldn’t someone have to be violent to give up? It takes a strong emotion to quit. You can be self-violent. As human beings we are inheritably flawed. Violence only causes more problems instead of providing solutions.
Family
Family can not and should not be taken for granted. It is very important and valuable. Not everyone is fortunate enough to have family. I cannot imagine living my life without the support of my family or not having my family by my side. We should be grateful and appreciate the fact that we have families. When something goes wrong it is good to know that you have someone or family to turn to for support. Through our fears, our insecurities, and doubts families are also there to get us through it all. And for all the endless and enormous reasons are why we should appreciate family more.
Life
Life is too short. Life is unpredictable. Life is unstable. Everybody is going to die because death is a journey everyone has to take. What is the point? Live life with an open hand. We have to accept that life is out of our control. Take the truth and accept it. Embrace it. Live life with an open hand. We don’t know how much time we have. Live life with an open hand. Sometimes we ask ourselves what is the purpose of life, God is the purpose. LIVE and FEAR the lord. God has the power to kill the body and soul. Obey the  commandments.You can be rich, you can be poor but you are still going to die. Everybody is going to die. Life is a gift from God, enjoy it. Enjoy life the way you experience it. When you start comparing your life to someone else’s you can’t enjoy life.
