Yes! I love America! Where I live in West Virginia, life moves at a slower pace, people believe in helping each other. You better believe if we hear of something someone needs, they will have it in short order, if at all possible. We just bought a turkey for a nice lady who wanted to have her children over for the holidays, but couldn't afford all the trimmings for the meal. We could barely afford it ourselves, but we had more than most.
America is a free country where we all can reach for our dreams and have a chance to do all the things we wish to do. I often tell young people, live right, be honest, follow the law, set goals and go for it! I am a "pull yourself up by the boot straps" individual myself. I have seen some really hard times. I have been up and I have been down. Because I live in America I believe in second chances. If you apply yourself, you'll get to where your going. Even if you don't get there, the journey will be exciting. You never know what's around the next curve or just across the mountain. There are many places in the world, where you are not even free to go look over the mountain.
We are a great nation and a better people, because we have freedom. Freedom, has a price, like everything has, and it is one that I will gladly pay. I will pay my taxes, follow the law and love my country. I am an American and I'm real proud of it.
