You have the responsibility to support yourself and your personal immediate and extended family. Being self-sustaining, providing for your own family, and serving your neighbor to the extent possible are requisite for a healthy economy and society. No society can flourish when a sizable amount of its citizens expect to do nothing while accepting a government dole. Reliance on government entities inevitably destroys individual self-respect and the economic happiness of both citizen and state. If you take care of yourself and family, and the community picks up the laziness, this nation will have one-third more funds for worthwhile projects and both you and this nation, will become strong and resilient.
You have the responsibility to make a change in the lives of your family, your community, and your nation. As a fine citizen you are here to make a contribution to this country. America has always taken place in the forefront advances, scientific research, humanitarianism, and other areas. You have the responsibility to endure this tradition through hard work and good use of your time. You have the responsibility to avoid excuses of race, economic standing, and victimization of any kind because, no matter which excuse you choose, someone has successfully overcome it.
