  1. It's ok it's probably just another one of ephraim plots lol like I'm stupid that's that girl from that movie fire with fire 😂😆 revelation 13 Psalms 62 1 kings 10 tell sheba to repent soon's getting bad ..Matthew 5

  2. I was one with her when I went in that day 😂😆 Hebrews 13 LOL 🕊️😆🕊️ 🌎 🐒 lol Micah she spoke from my threshing floor how could I not go in? 😂

    America, the abundant, the place I was born
    I'll cherish till the day I die.
    Where the bones of past heroes lie buried in the ground
    Who loved her the same as I.

    Her mountains are so tall they reach for the sky
    With prairies where the green grasses grow.
    There's billions of trees where wild birds nest
    With creatures that flourish below.

    That blue gold called water with which we are blessed
    As raindrops or crystallized snow
    Changes to rivers and fresh water lakes
    While the winds of our seasons blow.

    Some cities have buildings a hundred stories tall
    Structures of concrete, glass and steel.
    A statue in a harbor, a present from France
    Describes how inside, we feel.

    That flag on the moon with red and white stripes
    Proves America’s dreams come true.
    A country of heroes who line up to protect
    The past, the present and few.

    We can’t foresee what the future may bring
    Though we give it our best not to fail.
    Every 4th of July we illuminate the sky
    Proving freedom is alive and well.

  4. JULY 4th.1776 & NOW ?
    Once in command, he boxed in the British
    At Boston where he captured Dorchester Heights
    Overlooking the Brits at his mercy
    As his men took aim with their cannon sites.

    The British commander had but one choice
    To sail to New York to renew the fight.
    Where the English had much greater forces
    Who soon chased Washington's men in full flight.

    They continued on to Pennsylvania
    After crossing the Hudson in retreat
    With the British forces in hot pursuit
    It looked as though George was doomed to defeat.

    When winter seemed to have stopped the fighting
    That's when Washington crossed the Delaware.
    On Christmas night he captured Trenton
    Where Hessians were surprised and unaware.

    He whipped the British at Princeton
    Where in victory his men began to sing.
    Washington then wintered at Morristown
    Training his troops for the combat of spring.

    Washington fought bravely at Brandywine
    And again at a place called Germantown
    But the British were the victorious ones
    As the dead of both sides covered the ground.

    Americans were blessed early that spring
    When the French entered the war on their side.
    Though most suffered frostbite at Valley Forge
    With the help of the French they marched in stride.

    The battles raged on, in the North and South
    As the King’s soldiers laid waste to the land.
    Washington himself was in great despair
    Pleading for aid for his weakened command.

    His prayers were answered by 5000 troops
    And a French fleet who took Chesapeake Bay.
    They bottled up Cornwallis at Yorktown
    Who surrendered to victory drums at play.

    Yorktown was really the end of the war
    Though not many quite realized that fact yet.
    But the British soon grew tired of the fight
    And the terms for its end were signed and set.

    Washington yearned to retire at home
    But his country chose him first president.
    Cheering crowds waved flags of love and support
    For they believed that "he," by God, was sent.

    America has survived all attempts to destroy
    Knowing the cruelty of war.
    We who remain must help keep her free
    For those who can march no more!

  5. This woman is very dangerous if she would tell the BLM to Attack other race they will follow and do it she very dangerous I know the secret service and the kkk are Keeping a close eye on her, I don’t trust her.

  6. Amanda Gorman is such a educated, brave and stalwart young woman. She not only spoke, she inspired. True Queen

  7. Amanda, you did that. Wow, just awesome. Truly a gifted poet. When I listen to her I think about Maya Angelou and Martin Luther King, Jr. wrapped up in one and she is the wrap that holds it together. Amanda, you did a superb job and spoke the truth so eloquently, thank you. God bless you. ❤️

  8. Wow, was she not totally ashamed to write and read this piece of stupidity she calls poetry? And what's with all of the gender specific titles at the beginning of her "performance"? Nancy P. and all of her cronies want all such designations removed from our language.

  9. I have discernment, however. For those of you who don't. Notice how hard it is to understand her words.. good poetry is written to be understood by the common folk. This poetry is difficult to understand, has really no fundamental truths that are clear. She went over a lot of "political grey areas". If you don't believe in demons that's fine, she's just a wannabe poet, selfish motives.. And besides she made 0 sense. Literally 0. Sure let the girl be something great. I am fine with that…. But Jesus taught if you wanna be first you must be servant of all… This girl is riddled with selfish ambitions…. I mean what's with those hand movements???? lolol

    PS: sounds like the anti-christ

  10. Bright kid but brain washed and she has been lied to
    Have some respect for your ancestors

    0Did this young beautiful bright child say her grandparents struggled thru slavery
    Where she grow up China?
    Cause it wasn’t the USA (wtf?)
    Does she know her own history
    I think I kno more (sad day)
    Lol liar

  11. Inspiring! I pray we can work in a spirit of love and unity, desiring peace and harmony, reaching out to those we do not understand, standing up for US, not us vs. them, OUR way, not our own.
