A Birthday Letter to America

Happy Birthday America!  I must say you still look incredible – even after 232 years!  You are amazing, because it is you that keeps giving the gifts… even on YOUR Birthday you think of others.

I know that these days it seems that Mother Nature and Globe in general get all the attention, but I want you to know that YOU are always on my mind and in my heart.  You see, I know how good I have it being here with you.  You set such an amazing example for me.  You teach me to be strong and generous.  You teach me to set boundaries but still empathize with those around me.  You teach me that all things are possible no matter how large or how small. 

America, I want you to know that I think you are an incredible motherland.  You have welcomed so many children from so many areas and blended this family in such powerful ways.  Showing love, kindness, attentiveness, boundaries and providing an opportunity that is unlike anything I have ever seen in any of the other countries I have vistited.

Thank you America for your vision, your passion, your belief.  Thank you for being a Christian nation and yet a welcoming nation – not judging the religion of others asking only that we respect each others.  Thank you for the freedom you provide to me and my family.  Freedom that I promise you I will not take for grantide.

I know that you are Blessed.  I know that I am blessed to be American.  I am blessed to be able to dress as I want, practice the religion I want, drive the car that I want, work where I want, go to school where I want, live where I want, marry who I want… the list goes on and on!  What GIFTS you keep giving to us all!

America, don’t worry that some other nations don’t feel the same way about you that I do.  Afterall, it is not possible to be liked by everyone… no matter who you are… even Mother Teresa had critics.  I also know that you have had hard times in the past, in fact we may have hard times in the future, heck even some hard times now, but you have created a strong nation that I believe will come through for you, fight for you, keep your honor and honor your gifts to this family – our Nation. 

Well America, I really just wanted to take the time to write you a birthday note and tell you that I LOVE you, I appreciate you, I honor you, I respect you and most of all I am here for you should ever you need anything of me.  It is the least I can do for the many gifts I have received

Happy Birthday America!  God Bless You!
