Too Late To Apologize: A Declaration

One thing I will never tire of is learning from my boys.  Luke posted this on Facebook this afternoon and I have to say…it should get us all to stop and think about how and what our great country was founded on and for.

LYRICS

Halfway across the globe
And we’re standing on new ground
Screaming ‘cross the waves
You can’t hear a sound
There’s no fair trials, no trade, no liberties
No tea
We’ve colonized America; we won’t stand for tyranny,
Oh king

And it’s too late to apologize
It’s too late
I said it’s too late to apologize
It’s too late

We’ve paid your foolish tax, read the acts
And they just won’t do
We want to make it clear, we believe this much is true
All men were created with certain

Unalienable rights
Among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit
Of happiness

And it’s too late to apologize
It’s too late
I said It’s too late to apologize
It’s too late

It’s too late to apologize
It’s too late
I said it’s too late apologize
It’s too late

I said it’s too late to apologize, yeah
It’s too late
I said it’s too late to apologize, yeah

Halfway across the globe

And we’re standing on new ground

And of course a shameless plug:  If this even remotely interests the reader… please check out the History Channel’s “The Story of Us”

http://www.history.com/shows/america-the-story-of-us

Easily downloaded from iTunes or you can get the DVDs (if you are still living in that world)

Oh and we probably should not forget One Republic’s original version of the song…very good in it’s own right
