I to be an American Patriot. I think that the co-founder of this an excellent nation were influenced to dream, a dream that freedom- governed no by the rich, by royalty, but by the people- without emperors or tyrants or dictators, discovering that this flexibility would come at a good price- the stays of patriot soldiers and militiamen, whose rag-covered feet froze in the snow and who primitive weapons were no match against the many powerful nation in the world and who provided up their farms and their families and their stays so that we could say “We, the human being of the United states of America…”

I to be an American Patriot. I believe that God has actually blessed us so that we can be a blessing. And we may not be the policemen the the world. However we have heard the cries for help from countries trampled by international armies, and also races of world herded right into concentration camps and also crematoriums, and also children who must be in school forced into violent raiding next that kill their very own people- their own families- and we have not ignored your cries, and Americans have invested your lives and also their resources to answer those cries.

Ns salute the men and women who day-to-day place their resides in harm’s method on foreign soil- to bring hope because that a far better life also to people who hate us and also what we stand for.

Ns thrill to know that finally Honor Flights take it veterans in wheel chairs and also with walkers to view our an excellent capital and the memorials the a grateful nation has built to honor them and their service.
