I love being an American!

I AM proud to be an American. I am so blessed to be able to live in this country and enjoy the freedoms and abundances that we have. I think too many times we take these things for granted. I was reading a newspaper article today and it was about a third world country in Africa. The infant mortality rate was extremely high, their shacks were built on garbage, and they did not have running water or toilet facilities. Poverty lied within every doorstep and their futures were uncertain. Stops and makes you think a little and really appreciate what you have.
I am grateful we are not at war on our own soil and I love that there are men and women who are giving up their lives to maintain our rights and other countries rights.
I wish Americans could put aside their differences and work together and unite as one. I am fearful of where we are heading and worry about the future of this beautiful country and it's government. It is one nation UNDER GOD. Without God there is nothing but power hungry men who care nothing of me or my fellow citizens.
Let us all appreciate more than fireworks and parades this year. I know I will

I found a few quotes from some great American men that I thought I'd share.

Abraham Lincoln

America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves.
Abraham Lincoln

Don't interfere with anything in the Constitution. That must be maintained, for it is the only safeguard of our liberties.

I am not bound to win, but I am bound to be true. I am not bound to succeed, but I am bound to live by the light that I have. I must stand with anybody that stands right, and stand with him while he is right, and part with him when he goes wrong.

The people will save their government, if the government itself will allow them.

This country, with its institutions, belongs to the people who inhabit it. Whenever they shall grow weary of the existing government, they can exercise their constitutional right of amending it, or exercise their revolutionary right to overthrow it.

Ben Franklin

How few there are who have courage enough to own their faults, or resolution enough to mend them.

The Constitution only gives people the right to pursue happiness. You have to catch it yourself.

George Washington

I hope I shall possess firmness and virtue enough to maintain what I consider the most enviable of all titles, the character of an honest man.

The Constitution is the guide which I never will abandon.
