Are you a proud American? Do your eyes become teary when you hear something good about this country, when you hear the song, America, when you see many of our troops being honored, or when the Peoples of the world take time out to thank us in general? Well, I’m not ashamed to say that, I do tear up from time to time.
I truly believe that we live in the greatest country in the world for the following reasons. First of all, I believe with all my heart, that God’s favor has been showered upon this country, due in part to our benevolent attitude. Whenever tragedy strikes a less fortunate part of the world, we render assistance immediately, no matter what the circumstances. We don’t sit around, and ask whether or not that particular part of the world is a friend, or foe. Our primary concern is the human value placed on that hurting populace.
Secondly, I believe that part of our greatness comes from within. As a nation, we are blessed with a unique racial make up, which when meshed together, accomplishes the impossible. We are Native -Americans, Europeans, African- Americans, Latinos, and Asians. Together, we overcome, thrive , and achieve. “Of many, we are one”.
This coming 4th of July, be thankful for who we are. We are proud, but not arrogant. We are humble, but not meek. We are strong, but not bullies, for we defend those who are being bullied. We have abundance, but share with the world. As the world wonders, why we are such a caring nation,we say, We care because, “We are One Nation Under God. We are America”. God bless this great country.
