To the Editor:
Happy birthday, America.
I love you. Despite your flaws, you are still the most wonderful country on this earth. You are the country in which people from all over the world long to live. I am so very grateful to our founding fathers who, risking everything including their lives, created this incredible country.
They had extraordinary wisdom and vision, somehow seeing into the future to create documents that are as relevant today as they were over 240 years ago.
The Declaration of Independence. The Constitution of the United States of America. They created what Ronald Reagan referred to as “... the shining city on the hill.”
America, my heart aches for you as I watch some of your people attack you and the many men and women who gave so much of themselves, including their lives, so that you might be the bastion of freedom that you are.
Seems that those who assault you don’t even realize that they would not have the freedom to attack you with the governments in the types of countries they want you to be.
But America, please know there are many of us who still love you. We realize that you might have been formed by flawed men, but you continue to grow and learn from your history and to constantly strive for the best you can be.
God bless you, America, and our beautiful Stars and Stripes. May you live forever.
