Welcome to my page everyone. My name is Hamza Abdelgany. I’m 22 years old and I live in Quincy, Massachusetts (im like 10 minutes away from Boston). My religion is Islam and I love my religion very much. I am just about finishing my undergraduate education (inshaAllah) and I hope to start a job in law enforcement or with the military. My father is Egyptian and my mother was born here. I take a lot of pride in both halves of my ethnicity and I like to think of myself as coming from two different worlds. I mostly post pictures that I feel express my personality/character/interests/culture/religion although I do occasionally give you a more direct insight into my life. If you guys have any questions please just ask away, I’d be happy to answer most questions. I hope you all enjoy my page.
“I remember the first time I really UNDERSTOOD what it meant to be an American…What it was to be a Patriot. I was just a kid…A million years ago it seems sometimes. Maybe twelve. And I was reading Mark Twain. And he wrote something that struck me down to my core…Something so powerful, so TRUE, that it changed my life. I memorized it so I could repeat it to myself over the years. He wrote—“In a Republic, who is ‘The Country?’ Is it the government which is for the moment in the saddle? Why the government is merely a temporary servant; it cannot be its prerogative to determine what is right and wrong, and decide who is a Patriot and who isn’t. Its function is to obey orders, not originate them. Who then is ‘The Country?’ Is it the newspaper? Is it the pulpit? Why, these are mere parts of the country, not the whole of it; they have not command, they have only their little share in the command. In a Monarchy, the King and his Family are The Country; in a Republic, it is the common voice of The People. Each of you, for himself, by himself and on his own responsibility, must speak. It is a solemn and weighty responsibility, and not lightly to be flung aside at the bullying of the pulpit, press, government, or empty catchphrases of politicians. Each must for himself alone decide what is right and what is wrong, and which course is Patriotic and which isn’t. Your cannot shirk this and be a man. To decide it against your convictions is to be an unqualified and inexcusable traitor, both to yourself and to your country, let men label you as they may. If you alone of all the nation shall decide one way, and that way be the right way according to your convictions of the right, you have done your duty by yourself and by your country. Hold your head up. You have nothing to be ashamed of.” Doesn’t matter what the press says. Doesn’t matter what the politicians or the mobs say. Doesn’t matter if the whole COUNTRY decides that something WRONG is something RIGHT. This nation was founded on one principle above all else: The requirement that we stand up for what we believe, no matter the odds or the consequences. When the mob and the press and the whole WORLD tell you to move, your job is to plant yourself like a tree beside the river of truth, and tell the whole WORLD—“No YOU move.”—Captain America (this is why he’s my favorite superhero)(found in The Amazing Spiderman #537 pgs. 12-14)
