I asked myself a question today: What does it mean to be an American? There were several answers ... and they all were good. Being an American, means I have a multitude of freedoms:
Freedom to think and say what I think;
Freedom to worship;
Freedom to move about;
Freedom to try, and freedom to fail;
Freedom to stand up straight and look the world in the eye.
These freedoms were none of my doing. They were here long before I was born. My forefathers, and yours, fought to win them. I have four guarantees they will remain: The Declaration of Independence, The Constitution, My Fellow Americans and myself. No man could ask for more.
