America A La Mode - A Recipe

Take a huge melting pot.

Put in a large quantity of ENGLISH people (the English will add to the melting pot-our language, system of courts and laws, their desire for religious freedom)

Gradually add 3 cups of the IRISH (the Irish will add to the melting pot - St. Patrick's Day, shamrocks and leprechauns, Irish stew and Irish potatoes, the Irish Setter, their imagination and sense of humor)

Pour in a large measure of GERMANS (the Germans will add to the melting pot-hot dogs, the hamburger, the pretzel, kindergarten, the State University, and their determination to make their new land a great country)

Add a heaping cup of FRENCH (the French will add to the melting pot-wigs, the waltz, wonderful foods, the Statue of Liberty, a taste of elegance, and their dreams of freedom)

Add several tablespoons of AFRICANS (the Africans will add to the melting pot-soulful songs, jazz, athletes, large stature and muscles that did hard, heavy work in the country's infancy)

Add a pinch of REFUGEES FROM MANY LANDS - the tired, the poor, and the oppressed who yearn for freedom.

Mix all these ingredients well and allow to stand to grow rich in flavor. If the mixture begins to foam or bubble, fold in very gently some patience, understanding brotherhood, and love.

If you have done everything right, you should have AMERICA A LA MODE.
