For those who may miss the point.
Loving is also agreeing to disagree.

I don't think anyone will ever forget September 11, 2001.
I don't think anyone will ever view religious fanatics as harmless again.
I believe that religious fanatics of every persuasion are intrinsically evil.
I am proud to be an American.
I know that our freedoms which we take for granted, i.e. expressions artists,
freedom of speech at out leveldoes not exist anywhere else.

America is not perfect...but she is mine.
America is not without guilt..but she is mine.
America is not without shame..but she is mine.
America sometimes has amnesia ..but she is mine.
America gets sick sometimes and makes me sick...but she is mine.

America, America, america, yes i love her and am not ashamed to say it to the rest of the world.
I even love Arkansas, the burial place of my ancestors.
And wherever I may go when the time comes I want to be buried there where I was born.
In America if that's God's will.

So I ask you to pause for moment and think.
If you could be born anywhere else in the world where would you choose to be born?
If you cannot make a difference here then you cannot make a difference anywhere else.
CHARITY begins at home.
And I'm about cleaning up my own house.
How about you?
America is mine. Get over it.
She is yours too.
c.2002 Marion d. Hooper

Thank you for being a voice of reason. I want America to be the ideal, to raise the hurdle of justice - not lower herself to meet the lowest common denominator.
