Colours Blazing Like the Sun

There is a covenant between a country and its people. It’s an agreement and a bond that binds and informs and reinforces stability and conformity. The country agrees to acts justly and treat its people fairly. The state projects an image of everyday sanctity, of peace and potential. The people pay taxes, obey the law, take up arms, defend the homeland. They fetishize the flag and sing a strangled anthem. But when a state becomes unjust, acts unfairly and appears immoral, the covenant breaks. We have to each ask ourselves if our country is keeping its part of the covenant.
