Chris Pratt posted a controversial poem on Instagram about how divided America has been. The Christian actor ended the post by saying that “under God, we’re indivisible”.
The award-winning actor has always been open about his Christianity and faith in God. Using his platform to sharing his faith with with others has been his ultimate goal.
The Marvel actor described the poem as a “hot new poem” with the title “DING-DONGS”. The poem contains social commentaries about how divided America is and how the media intensifies the division.
“Ding to the left.
Dong to the right.
The reverberations swell.”
The poem refers to the far left and far right and the prolonged chaos that the divisiveness has caused.
“Ding dongs on the far right fringes
Squeaking mad like rusty hinges.
Ding dongs from the far left squad
Fixed on answers outside God.”
The people also states how the media played with the division.
“The media plays them like a fiddle
Drowning out the healthy middle.
Pick your tribe. State your name
DISREGARD: WE’RE ALL THE SAME!”
Call for unity
The “Jurassic World” actor then ended his post by emphasizing that we are all children of God. He even calls America to unity.
“We’re His children despite race, creed, preference or age.
Under God we’re indivisible.
To stay United is our duty.”
Chris’s post received different comments. Some appreciated Chris for the bold post and support him. Others were unhappy with his opinion and were pleading him to stay away from politics.

Dropping a hot new poem I found. DING-DONGS Ding to the left. Dong to the right. The reverberations swell. Ding dong!Ding dong! They clang the outrage bell. Ding dongs on the far right fringes Squeaking mad like rusty hinges. Ding dongs from the far left squad Fixed on answers outside God. The media plays them like a fiddle Drowning out the healthy middle. Pick your tribe. State your name DISREGARD: WE’RE ALL THE SAME! (Burdened by a sinful heart and hiding in some form of shame.) Change the channel! Don’t be late! Pundits tell you who to hate! Who’s a racist? Who’s a fake? 24 hours of news to break! Skewering truths, spewing sewage, leading mobs of frenzied voices, With two choices, red or blue, And key points to regurgitate. Echo chamber ringing, rips the fabric of society. (Followed by an ad for a pill you pop to stop anxiety.) Get your blood a pumpin’ with some whisper fueled assumption, About someone who wore somethin’ or some singled out opinion among tweeters by the billions “But this one was so outrageous And egregious and alarming!” And you’re angry for the anger in your heart that had been forming Is on the verge of boiling over And you try but are unable Like Chernobyl in your heart the chain reaction is unstable And the blood pressure is higher than the moment just before… And the next commercial thankfully Is a high blood pressure cure. There’s a rhythm to this madness If you take a sec to look One option is unplug Put down your phone pick up a book But the other option probably is more helpful and realistic Find the humor, check the facts, and try to remain optimistic. Ask yourself the question: who profits from my rage? And prevent them from lining up their pockets with that booty. We’re His children despite race, creed, preference or age. Under God we’re indivisible. To stay United is our duty.
On July 4, Chris also posted other thoughts about America along with a photo of the Declaration of Independence.
“I personally believe it’s important to reflect upon the idea of America. Any institution made by humans is bound to be imperfect. But it is our responsibility to strive to improve, to form a ‘more perfect union’”.

Happy Fourth!! I really respect the author Jack Carr. His books are really cool. And he fought for his country. Today we Americans celebrate with parades, fireworks, laughs, love and family. I really like what Jack has to say below. I personally believe it’s important to reflect upon the idea of America. Any institution made by humans is bound to be imperfect. But it is our responsibility to strive to improve, to form a “more perfect union”. What can we do? How can we heal this growing divide? I feel like recognizing the fact that nobody is perfect is a start. It allows us to judge less, to realize despite our differences we have common ground And what is our common ground? In the words of Abraham Lincoln “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.” Sounds good to me! Quick edit: Yes, Jefferson wrote the words and later Lincoln spoke them. Interesting point to see how that idea evolved to mean so much more by then. What can it mean today? We continue to evolve. We strive to be more perfect. ????❤️???????? #Repost @jackcarrusa ・・・ “…we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes, and our sacred Honor.” I highly encourage all Americans to read the Declaration of Independence today, and every Fourth of July, with their families, as a tribute to those who pledged their Lives, their Fortunes, and their sacred Honor so that we could inherit the freedoms we enjoy today. Take the opportunity that Independence Day affords to discuss, particularly with your children, the freedoms and opportunities we’ve been entrusted to uphold, and our responsibility as citizens to pass them on to future generations. We will be reading it tonight. Strength and Honor. #IndependenceDay #1776 #FourthOfJuly #DeclarationofIndependence #Revolution #Fight #History #Honor #DontTreadOnMe #JoinOrDie #GadsdenFlag #LibertyOrDeath #GiveMeLibertyOrGiveMeDeath #Patriots #America #USA #Freedom
