    Yes, I Am Still Proud To Be An American

    I am the first to admit, I am always finding fault with our country. I do not see America thru rose colored glasses. Her beautiful face and body is ugly and scarred with racial hate, religious intolerance, depressing poverty, illegal blood baths overseas, Americans struggling to...

    I am a proud American!

    With July 4th upcoming I am especially thankful to God that I am an American. I pray that the new and future immigrants value freedom for all as much as those who came before us.
