I heard an Australian say today that America is the greatest country on earth! What a breath of fresh air! He inspired me! In spite of our difficulties more of us proud Americans need to start speaking up about our love for this land. No matter what Political Party is in power, no matter the shape of our economy, no matter the unemployment rate or domestic crisis dominating the news, people are still trying to break the bonds of restrictive nations around the world and risk their lives to come to this great land. A plaque on the Statue of Liberty says “Give me your tired your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, The retched refuse of your teeming shore. Send these, the homeless, tempest tossed to me. I lift my lamp beside the golden door” (Emma Lazarus). Let’s be proud of America today. God Bless America!
