What happened to America?

Wed, 04/05/2017 - 09:42 -- racooo

I am proud of America.

I am proud to live in a land of rights for all.

I am proud to follow in the footsteps of those who came before.

 

Americans have abandoned the idea of America.

 

The idea of America is rights for all.

The idea of America embraces everyone without restriction.

The idea of America inspires the world.

 

We have set aside this idea and taken up prejudice and fear instead.

 

I am not proud to be an American.

I am not proud to see discrimination every day.

I am not proud to watch us abandon our core values.

 

America is great.

 

America means freedom.

America represents equality.

America equals liberty.
