I am a Patriotic Resident Alien
In talking to Americans, I am amazed that even those that call themselves patriotic, aren't always patriotic to the depths that I, as a Canadian- Resident Alien here, am, to the U.S.A. !
I have a strong heart- feeling to the United States, and to what we stand for, and what we want to do in the world, and in the United States , for our people, for our economy, for our place in the world, and to keep peace in other nations, and help the poor.
Aren't our citizens reading what is was like to be a Pilgrim and come to the NEW nation?? What are they teaching in our schools about freedom, and how hard it was to get freedom and remain free?
Strong Patriotism normally starts in the youth and younger. If the schools are missing out on this instruction - the Pilgrims, the growth of colonies, the fighting with the French, fighting against the British, fighting ( right or Wrong? ) with the Indians, Civil War, crossing America on wagon trains, Gold Rush, building the railroad, growth of the future cities, Emancipation, etc- then the parents of U.S. children need to emphasize these hardships and joys that people have gone through, for their own sake and for us, their grandchildren.
We take so much for granted, We are spoiled- like children who are given too much without working for it.
Thankyou God for what we have! Thankyou for all who gave their lives for our freedom. God Bless America!!
