Today, we are celebrating the 246th year of America’s Independence. As we mark America’s Independence Day, let us not forget that freedom is alive, the American Dream lives on, and America is the most powerful nation in the entire world.
Recently, a Fox News poll showed that only 39 percent of Americans are proud of the country today, compared to 69 percent of people in June of 2011. An astounding 56 percent say they are not proud of the country today. Despite the grim outlook on the country, it is the best nation in the world. Even the most critical of America remain here.
The freedoms Carl Dekel, a World War II veteran and the United States Marine Corps veteran, fought for make it possible to both criticize America and enjoy its benefits.
We are the most friendly country. People who criticize America more often than others have never visited or lived anywhere else on the planet. If they visit Cuba, Lebanon, North Korea, Venezuela, etc., where those countries lack basic necessities or are run by a dictatorship, I’m sure they will appreciate the greatness of the United States of America.
Our veterans fought for the preservation of our freedoms; they fought hard to make this the best country in the world and were successful. Sean Duffy, a former congressman, said:
” When it comes down it to it, it is important to feel proud of who you are. Do not let anyone convince you, or your children that this country should be shameful. There is so much to be proud about. Since 1776, the United States has only grown stronger and stronger and stronger. We’re the most innovative and creative country in the world.”
There are many citizens proud to call themselves Americans. Like our heroes and veterans who fought for her, they will continue to fight for her. America will remain the country of the free, and home to the brave forever. The American Dream must be preserved.
Times may seem difficult right now but our heroes didn’t give up when it was difficult. They fought and fought to secure our freedoms, for We The People and for the American Dream. Our freedoms must be taken seriously, Ronald Reagan said it once:
“Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. It wasn’t passed on to our children through the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same.”
The American Dream is still alive. The land of opportunity is our home. Our freedoms should not be taken for granted. It is our duty to preserve and protect the land we cherish.
Home of the free because of the brave.
We are grateful to all the men and women who served today, yesterday, and tomorrow.
