Grateful to be an American

Unlike Michelle Obama, I've always been proud to be an American citizen. I love the freedoms we enjoy as citizens.  I can say what I think, pray the way I wish, own a gun or not, buy and sell property, work at any job I'm qualified for.  Too many blessings to list.  We live in the land of opportunity and I'm darned proud to be an American.

I'm very sad that our federal government won't perform it's most basic function -- protection of its citizens from foreign invasion. So, when Arizona wanted to do what the feds refuse to do, the court gutted the law. Bring back our troops from Afghanistan and protect our border.  I don't understand what we are doing in Afghanistan.  I don't understand we care why North Korea and South Korea hate each other.  I think we need to take care of business at home.

Home is no longer the geographical US: it is the world at large. Events in other parts of the world do affect and effect our lives and fear of change producing isolation is not a protection. There is no protection. But there is courage, vigilence,common sense, and community, a world communtiy. Caring about what happens in the Sudan is caring about your neighbor. Caring about Next door is caring about Indonesia.
