The Symbol Of Freedom!
AMERICA THE BEAUTIFUL
Let's not forget what our forefathers went through for us! Our ancestors fought and died for what we have today. They faced great odds against them to come to this land we call home, not only to come here, but, to shape it into what it is today! Some people may say "What's so great about this land?" When someone says that to me, I ask them if they have tried living in another country, and living by that other Countries laws, and ways of life? We may have our problems, but, this is still the very best place to live in all the world. I am not putting down other countries, but, AMERICA is still the land of opportunity in all the world! Do you know why it is the best? I do! Because our ancestors set out to make it the land of the free, and the home of the brave, so my hat is off to those ancestors that came before us, because they made their dreams come true, for them, and for us!

I salute the settlers to the New World, they endured terrible hardships during their first few years in this land. They fought for what they believed in, and for what they wanted, they endured horrible Winters that they were not prepared for. Many died, but they continued on, and they overcame the obstacles so we could have what we have today.

I salute the Native Americans of this great land! Altho we are all AMERICANS, they are the original AMERICANS. It took a lot of dying, of both the Settlers, and the Native Americans, but finally we learned to live together! The Native Americans fought, and died for what they believed in! My hat is off to the Native American ancestors of this great Nation!

I salute the Colonist that decided we should be our own Country independent of any other Country in the world! Those people took a great risk declaring independence, but they had a dream, a dream of a Great Nation, independent of any, and all other Nations in the World, that dream is realized! My hat is off to the Colonist that made this a free land for one and all!

I salute our ancestors that fought in the war of 1812! Again they had to raise up and bear arms to defend this land from another Country wanting to lay claim to it. They managed to beat the attackers, and keep this land free for us all. My hat is off to our ancestors that fought in the war of 1812.

Have you ever fought with your Brother's and Sister's? How about your cousin's, or your best friend? Everyone disagrees from time to time, and so it was with this Great Country! The War Between The States was a bad time for this Country! Brother fought Brother, Father fought Son, families were divided, and many of our ancestors died! However they died for what they believed in! They fought for their beliefs, and their way of life! I can't condemn them for that! Altho I consider myself a Southerner, I have to say that slavery was the most inhuman thing I can think of! I am against slavery in any form or fashion! But, I do not condemn our ancestors for owning slaves, because that was a way of life at that time in history. Many of those slaves are now ancestors of people that their ancestors owned slaves. In tracing family lines back through time you can find many instances where your ancestors owned your ancestors! NOW all men are created equal! I believe this, and I live by this! My hat is off to our brave ancestors that fought in War Between The States!

I salute our relatives, and ancestors that fought in World War I! Although this war was not fought on American soil, it was still fought to ensure the safety and freedon of this Great Country! Our relatives and ancestors left their homes and families to go put their lives on the line for the freedom of every person living in this country, many of them never returned, they paid with their lives so that we could be safe and free! My hat is off to our relatives and ancestors that fought in World War I!

I salute our relatives and ancestors that once again were called upon to bear arms and defend this Great Country in World War II! Again they were required to leave their homes and families to go into battle from which many never returned! Our Great Country was forced into this war. We were hurt when Pearl Harbor was bombed, but, once again we stepped up and refused to be beaten! What our Great Country did to end that war was drastic, but completely justifiable in my eyes! Because we will not be beaten! My hat is off to our relatives and ancestors that fought in World War II!

I salute our relatives and ancestors that fought in The Korean War. Again America was required to bear arms and fight for freedom! Not our own freedom this time, but the freedom of other people in another Country! What greater thing could one person do for another than to go and help them fight for their freedom! These relatives and ancestors went and fought for freedom itself! Our Great Country is built on freedom, and I for one believe that freedom is for all people all over the world! Should we have been in Korea fighting for freedom? In my opinion, YES! My hat is off to our relatives and ancestors that fought in The Korean War!

Vietnam! Again Americans were called upon to leave their homes and families to go to the other side of the World to fight for freedom! I salute our relatives and ancestors that went into the jungles of Vietnam to fight for freedom of the South Vietnamese! Again they were fighting for freedom itself! Many never returned, they paid the ultimate price for the freedom of people they didn't even know! That is what I call believing in freedom! That is what this Great Country is all about "FREEDOM" Should we have been in Vietnam fighting for freedom? In my opinion, you know it! My hat is off to our relatives and ancestors that fought in The Vietnam War!

I salute our relatives and ancestors that fought in Desert Storm! Once again America was called upon to leave their homes and families to go and fight for freedom, and once again we picked up our arms and went! Again America was fighting for the freedom of people that we didn't even know, and once again freedom prevailed! Should American went to fight for the freedom of people we didn't know? In my opinion, YES! My hat is off to our relatives and ancestors that fought in Desert Storm.

I would like nothing more than to hear the LIBERTY BELL ring around the world in my lifetime! I believe in freedom! All people of the World should be free to live their lives as they choose. I believe as the Greatest, and free'st Country in the World, we should lend a hand to other peoples of the World to gain their freedom!

LET FREEDOM RING!
