You are witnessing what will be shown to future generations as the reason for the fall of an Empire.
“A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly.” ~ Marcus Tullius Cicero, 106-43 BC

…and a preemptive apology to future generations.
Children of tomorrowChildren of tomorrow,I apologize to youOn behalf of those in my time,for the things we didn’t do.We didn’t stop the tyrants,so your fate could be preventedWe watched them steal our freedom,by our silence we consented.We didn’t choose to circumventthe doom you’ve not escapedWhile the Bill of Rights was murderedand the Constitution raped.Some of us were lazy,others too afraidTo think about our children,the ones we have betrayed.I guess we were too busyto be concerned or careTo try to ease the burdenof the chains we made you wear.We could have been good shepherdswhen the wolf got in the foldBut we watched the flame of freedom die instead,and left you cold.I’m sorry we were timid,my selfish generationFor we left you but a remnantof a free and prosperous nation.I’m sorry for our actions,like cowards we behavedWe could have left you freedom,but instead you are enslaved.Children of tomorrow,descendants of our landI’m sorry we allowed this,the fate you now withstand.~Author Unknown
