Our country has been and remains a land of opportunity unlike anything in the past or the present. It was the hope of a brave new world where early settlers risked it all for a chance at freedom continuing down to today's immigrants seeking these same freedoms.
It is this characteristic, yea fundamental truth of our nation that implicitly transforms people's hearts and minds. It makes all of us better individuals as, "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness."
It is this love of freedom that lifts our condition, has lifted the world's condition and to which we must remain true. The love affair was truly scandalous at the foundation of our country yet has managed to lift the condition of the world.
God Bless America
