Approaching Easter, perennial memorial celebrated by Christians, imbedded culturally, joined by Christmas and by recognition of diversity of religious landmarks, the symbolic message of life everlasting comes amid chaos, poverty, hate crimes, mayhem, and nations engaged in what they consider justified narratives of wars or rumors of wars.

From hamlets to towering metropolitan communities, with the rule of governments, whether chosen freely or ruled by anarchy, we've come to realize the interests of politicians interfere with the rule of law.

Once again, the assault on our individual sovereignty repeats historic conflicts from 1776 to 2017, as our nation struggles to form a more perfect Union.

The recent confirmation of President Trump's nominee to the Supreme Court of the United States demonstrates the division despite the assigned members' oath or affirmation to preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.

Overarching question: the interpretation of the Constitution as a living document, seen by critics who protest the Court legislating from the bench. So the art, or if you will, the science of governance does not fit neatly into an algorism.

Government of the people, by the people, and for the people remains challenged, a work in progress.

The celebrants of Easter enjoy certainty of their belief irrespective of the secular world. Securing the Blessings of Liberty remains a perennial challenge, aggravated by denial or by disrespect of our alleged unalienable rights.

Irrespective of one's religious belief, is it acceptable to attribute spirit of the joy and the fulfillment of Easter to inspire reaffirmation of the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity?
