By far one of my favorite films, shows, or documentaries was Ken Burns, National Parks Americas Best Idea. It is a very long very in-depth multi-part series placing before us the history of Americas National Parks starts to the end of the Documentary in 2008-2009.
There are several beautiful parts in the series and in true Ken Burns fashion, it is shot, edited and researched to the best levels. But one of the best statements is the statement not that the idea or concept of the parks was Americas best idea but the best idea was Thomas Jefferson's idea that all men are created equal! or more exactly “We hold these Truths to be self-evident, that all Men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness….”
The fact is this underlying premise is the foundation in the way of the park's and park's system we enjoy today. They are there for all man, women, child American citizen or just global citizen. These wild places are there for us all as a human's to enjoy and share. A place where we can all come together regardless of race, color, creed, or station in life they are a place for peace and re-energizing a situation where in my point of view we are all equal.
I had the incredible luck to be born in the heart of the Shenandoah Valley here in Virginia. I was born to parents that understood the importance of the world around us the natural outdoors and the importance of farms and everything in everyone's life that well makes living possible. I was blessed to be raised in a home that pushed me to accept all and understand as much and as many as I could and most importantly that asking questions was a good thing. This is no small part has made me who I am today and in a considerable part has given me the respect I have for the world around me and the respect for everyone and all they di so my family and I can live the lives we do.
I was lucky to grow up at Milepost ZERO of the Blue Ridge Parkway and Milepost 105.5 of the Skyline Drive that runs the length of Shenandoah National Park. I have been blessed to grow up near and in these parks and in and near George Washington National and Jefferson National Forests and many state and local parks in Virginia, Pennsylvania, and North Dakota. I have been even more blessed in my adult life to visit even more National Parks. Parks like Everglades, Theodore Rosevelt, Glacier, Mt Ranier, Joshua Tree, Big Bend, Smokie Mountain National Park, Yellowstone National Park, and Acadia. All of these have had an impact on me, in all I have met people from all walks of life and with only one real common thread they were visiting a beautifully preserved and educational place and they were all smiling and happy and getting along with each other. People were helping each other climb a hill or cross a creek. Talking to and shaking hands with people they did not know and in any other place and time may not even speak to or give the time of day. However here there are no barriers there are no walls; there are just humans being kind to each other.
Just a personal thought maybe we all need to spend more time in these places and spend more time being kind to each other and perhaps just perhaps when we do this we will take a little of this home with us and start healing this country we call home!
Just a thought and only my opinions and observations feel free to leave a comment, but if you can't leave a nice one, please move along.
