Our country, the United States of America, is one of the greatest countries to ever exist. It’s greatness lies in the strength of its citizens—you and me.
Think about this: The greatest road system in the world is the US road system. It provides more, larger, and better roadways than in any other country. How can this be? Could any one of us afford to build a length of highway in front of our house? Not too easily! But by all of the US citizens, pooling their financial resources together, we are able to make this happen. And it’s the same with our schools, our community buildings, and many other manmade resources we have. By all of us pitching in, we help make the United States the great country that it is. So when you’re thinking about tonight’s theme, Dollars and Sense, don’t forget that part of that sense is common sense—common as in “community.”
Let’s join together to recite the Pledge of Allegiance—the pledge that joins us all together in this great nation.
