ran 3.2 miles
There are millions upon millions of unsung heroes, both alive and deceased, who do and have done things on any given day to sustain the integrity of America and its principles. Rather than post about something we all recognize as a memorable day in history, perhaps a tribute to everyday people, who are equally significant, is just as important.

On this day in history, at any given time, someone in America has grinned inwardly with a humble sense of pride because they achieved a goal that they had sweat and bled for. At any given time, someone in this country stood up for something they believed in and they changed states of affairs, allowing them to simply sleep better at night. On this day in history, somebody woke up and got out of bed and went to work, once again lubing the gears of this incomprehensibly massive machine called America, asking in return only to be left alone to live his or her life, unfettered from the nearly unbearable gravity American politics have heaved upon our backs. On this day in history, someone realized that reliance on any government is an impediment to his or her self-being. On this day, at any given time, someone wanted to scream from the top of a mountain that the way to beat a government is for individuals to set goals and to do everything they can to obtain them. This single noble act, which I believe we were put on Earth to perform, to have a chance to embrace life and live it to its fullest, is the one ultimate obstruction that any government faces; a nation of self-fulfilled citizens is a nation where presidents, senators, and representatives have no firm ground in which to create complication out of nothing.

Government is by all means necessary, but obligation falls upon every individual citizen to rely on it as little as possible. The decisions Barack Obama is making right now are like hollowing out a giant rock, which is America, and stuffing it with feathers. America is losing its structure and becoming a pillow for anyone to rest their heads on.

1,964.3 miles to go.
