I am proud to be an American

While I was watching the spectacular display of fireworks Sunday night at the Ness Sports Complex, I realized how proud I was to be an American.

Even with the economy the way it is, the oil spill in the Gulf and in the midst of two wars, The United States is still the greatest nation in the world. There is no other nation that can even compare to what we have.

We live in the land of the free, a land full of opportunity and most of all ‘Home of the Brave.’

We as Americans have a common bond-Freedom. Our freedom was not cheap and it did not come easy.

There were lots of lives sacrificed and our founding fathers fought many hard battles, enduring hardships, so that we could live free and be independent from other nations.

We need to celebrate the Americans who fought for our independence and celebrate the Americans who are still fighting to preserve our freedom so that we may still have life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

Yes…There is always someone out there trying to undermine our Constitution, our Faith and our Religion…Someone out there trying to undo what our founding fathers fought so hard for…but only if we let them.

Yes…I am very proud to be an American, proud of what those who came before me have done and proud of our American Soldiers and what they stand for…Freedom.

God Bless America! “We have proclaimed our freedom to live free rather than die as slaves,”… Samuel Adams.
