Despite what some may say, America IS great...always has been. Only a great nation would have continuously welcomed foreigners to its shores, including my grandparents and, most probably, yours as well. In many places, we would not be able to speak or believe or pray as we wish. We might not be free to work hard to educate our children and encourage them to follow their dreams.
So let's be thankful we live in this great nation. It may not be perfect, but it's pretty damn close.
God bless America.
