Proud to be An American! In America we can choose our own destiny, our own careers, to fail or succeed and to marry who we choose! How often have we thought how lucky we are to be born in such a country? Look at what is happening across the globe. People are fighting for the basic rights of liberty in government and life without reprisals. Fathers killing their daughters in honor killings for being to western, selecting their own religions. Political prisoners are common all over the globe. How lucky we are to be in the land of opportunity. A free people who have the right to believe in any religion or not to believe at all. To protest our government, to vote for our leaders and have rights that no dictator can take away. We have a Constitution that guarantees our rights and for that reason I am a very proud American. Happy New Year!
