What Builds A Nation

It is not about,

how many problems we have.

Are there problems with racism?


Are there problems with division?

Of course there are.

Still, politics is not,

what defines this nation.

It is not the protests.

Nor is it the groups.

What defines us a nation -

what makes America great,

is the contrary.

What makes America great,

are the Americans who live,

as hard working people.

What makes America great,

are the Americans,

who are grateful,

for what they do have -

those who show their gratitude.

What defines us,

is how we treat,

our fellow Americans -

not just our fellow Americans,

but our fellow neighbors.

It is not the complaints,

and the hatred,

and the, 'trying to please everybody',

that makes us great.

That is not,

what represents America.

Rather, it is us,

loving one another,

without having,

any hidden agenda

on our mind.

That is what keeps America,

united and great.

      I must ask. Did you really meet those people?
      Persistence is key

      • ANGELA & BRIAN

        YES ! I\'m 35 born in 1883 and I met Bily Graham with my Parents in 1989 when he came LONDON ENGLAND. My Parents were BG Coucellors. Boots Randolph (Saxophonist and a Friend of JIM REEVES who died in 1964) I met @ Kissimee where he was giving a concert in 2000. For my 20th Birthday (2003) I went to the GRAND OLE OPREY and Kris was chairing a Memorial Concert for Johhny Cash ! Bill Clinton I met in Little Rock Arkansas in 2004 he was doing a recording for 60 minutes outside his childhood home !

        I am repeating my comments to A&B

        I believe that those courageous people drafted a document so powerful that it was meant for humanity at large and not just one nation or one people. It was not perfect, as they themselves exclaimed, but it gave people the right, a right that we must today enforce, as we gave traversed far from the true meaning of those words.
