It’s Great To Be An American

The Vietnam War Memorial in Washington DC.

Written by Gary Wonning

If there is anything good that will come out of the last eight years of turmoil, I believe it will be the fact that many Americans have become more aware of the value of our constitution and way of life.

Many of us have forgotten how lucky we re to live in this great land of ours. We forget how many around the world still live under oppression and poverty, the likes of which even the poorest in this country can’t imagine.

Often times, we Americans forget how lucky we are to live in this great land of ours and it takes someone from another country to remind us

Many times I have tried to remove myself from the animosities in the world today, but I am always drawn back by something someone from another country says or does about our country.

On Christmas Eve a friend of mine, someone who normally doesn’t express his feelings, made the statement about how much he loves America.

It was the perfect time to be once again reminded of how fortunate all of us are to live in this great land.
