America I thank you Thank you America for giving me the freedom to live, to prosper, to grow. Thank you America for sheltering me from evil. Thank you America for letting my ancestors come and live among you, and escape persecution and starvation. Thank you America for standing up to and defeating the evil in this world. Thank you America for having a sense of moral purpose. When I look upon you symbol America I always have a tear in my eye and a lump in my throat, when others burn your symbol, when others trample your symbol, I cherish it and love it and display it for all to see as I am PROUD TO BE A AMERICAN! So thank you America the land of the free the land of the brave the land of my home.
