BREXIT Day: An open letter to the British People

Congratulations!! You are finally on your way to being free from the dictatorial tyranny of the EU. Many people have fought hard for this day and it was hard fought indeed. In a clear show of spite, many have tried to stop this even after a democratically held election showed the desire to leave. And many people will try to sabotage this process as time goes on. Even now the EU council is trying to extend the process to 3 years so they have time to continue to lob political attacks at 10 Downing Street. But I know you will pull through this even with those inside your own country trying to stop you. This day is an affirmation, a show of gratitude for every soldier who fought so that Britan would be free 70 years ago. Many died or risked their lives then to make sure that Britan has the right to determine their own rights.

Somewhere along the line, the promise came that the European Union would ensure economic prosperity, and Britan joined that bloc not knowing what they were getting into. And gradually as time went on and more power was taken away from Britan quietly, the youth of the country began to forget about those sacrifices and take them granted. They were fed the idea that they could not live without that EU. Many became dependent on the monster that took and took from Britan without realizing what kind of Demon they were dealing with.

Finally, somewhere at some point, somebody cried out into the dark at the injustice and hypocrisy and the movement for your freedom began. With your own government working against you the right to hold a referendum was secured. And then despite being told you wouldn’t win you campaigned and voted. And on that glorious summer day in June of 2016 history was made when Great Britan Voted to throw off the oppressive yoke of the European Union. And even though the fight has not stopped since then, your momentum and overwhelming love for your own country have all but guaranteed victory.

You have made your voices heard and it is brilliant. In the face of lies and intimidation, you have won and you keep winning. Truly my grandfather who was stationed in Britan with the US Army during the great war would be smiling if he were alive today to see this. Many angry people are claiming that you are taking yourselves out of Europe, but this is untrue. Britan will always be part of Europe as it always has been, you are now just taking a step forward to secure your own future in a world that will soon remember the EU as a brief mistake of history. In your darkest moments, remember this song that my grandfather admired for its show of the strength and optimism of the strong British people:

Rule, Britannia! Britannia, rule the waves!
Britons never, never, never shall be slaves.

When Britain first, at heaven’s command,
Arose from out the azure main,
This was the charter of the land,
And Guardian Angels sang this strain:

Rule, Britannia! Britannia, rule the waves!
Britons never, never, never shall be slaves.

The nations not so blest as thee
Must, in their turn, to tyrants fall,
While thou shalt flourish great and free:
The dread and envy of them all.

Rule, Britannia! Britannia, rule the waves!
Britons never, never, never shall be slaves.

Still more majestic shalt thou rise,
More dreadful from each foreign stroke,
As the loud blast that tears the skies
Serves but to root thy native oak.

Rule, Britannia! Britannia, rule the waves!
Britons never, never, never shall be slaves.

Thee haughty tyrants ne’er shall tame;
All their attempts to bend thee down
Will but arouse thy generous flame,
But work their woe and thy renown.

Rule, Britannia! Britannia, rule the waves!
Britons never, never, never shall be slaves.

To thee belongs the rural reign;
Thy cities shall with commerce shine;
All thine shall be the subject main,
And every shore it circles, thine.

Rule, Britannia! Britannia, rule the waves!
Britons never, never, never shall be slaves.

The Muses, still with freedom found,
Shall to thy happy coasts repair.
Blest isle! with matchless beauty crowned,
And manly hearts to guard the fair.

Rule, Britannia! Britannia, rule the waves!
Britons never, never, never shall be slaves.

Rule, Britannia! Britannia, rule the waves!
Britons never, never, never shall be slaves.
