America, Fuck Yeah!

"Give me your tired,
your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,
I lift my lamp beside

the golden door!”

Regardless of what you may believe, this is still the country that we love, and for many reasons. We live in a nation that believes in freedom. Freedom of religion, freedom of speech, personal freedom, as well as the freedom to change. For without that particular freedom, the United States of America wouldn't be what it is today. And thats why I love this country. We adapt, we change to fit the populous' needs. I could never live anywhere else. Today is a day to remember, however, that freedom isn't free. Many men, our fathers, grandfathers, and great- grandfathers, fought and many died so that we, You and I, might enjoy the freedom that our forefathers once only imagined. So thank a vet today. And don't forget those currently serving--for it is their sacrifice that makes us able to be the freest people on earth today. Thank someone for their service on this sacred day. Please don't take it for granted, because god help us, if we don't do our part, the beauty of that freedom we so enjoy could one day disappear like dust in the wind, and without our freedom, who would we be? Remember: Freedom isn't Free.
