    I Get Real Tired of Being Asked to Apologize For It

    A poem: I was once asked just what I believe in, And though I know I sounded out of touch, I told that person what I believe in, Knowing all the while, it wouldn’t matter to him much. I took off my hat, looked him in the eye and said: Sir, I choose to believe in...

    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.

    Some people don't believe in the American dream.

    I was just thinking about a video I saw about North Korea. I noticed their streets look like ours in America, only one difference... They're empty! In a lot of countries, people are not happy or doing what they want to do. They don't all have the great things we have. How can...
