America
3 Jul, 2020

I think America is an idea or person more than a place (though, sadly, often hypocritical both structurally and attitudinally, just like a real person). Deep down, I think she believes…

  • Anyone can become anyone, no matter their origin
  • It is more meaningful to choose for oneself than for the group to be “great” through group choices
  • Prior storylines can be broken; new beginnings are possible
  • Open arms to the homeless and downtrodden from around the world
  • The only way to sort out human differences, in the end, is to align to higher power

As much as these core values of America are in my heart, I’m proud to be an American.

“Give me your tired, your poor,

Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,

The wretched refuse of your teeming shore,

Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,

I lift my lamp beside the golden door!”

Lady Liberty
