Where Would We Go Today?
We remember the Pilgrims,
And what they went though,
Echoed through the years,
To me and you.
Going for religious freedom,
To a New Land,
That brave band.
Where would we go today,
From the U.S.A.,
As our religious freedoms,
Are being chipped away?
What land has even a potential,
Where people could worship as they please.
And live out their faith,
At home and workplace with ease?
So, the question rises,
To be answered this Thanksgiving Day –
The Pilgrims came here,
But where would we go far away?
— Charles B. Mayes
