What My Country Means to Me
There is nothing better in the world than waking up on a beautiful Saturday morning freed of a schedule, no worries, laying in the bed thinking, “ What you would like to do today? Maybe go on a hike? Or what about a pickup football game with family and friends while cookingout?” Sun shining through the trees…smell of sizzling burgers and hotdogs on the grill, your closest friends waiting anxiously for you to call their name to be on your team… while envisioning themselves catching that perfect touchdown pass. We have all been there right? Living that American dream. The American dream …what does that mean to you? It means freedom to me. Freedom to live your life, to pursue your goals, and enjoy every precious moment that each day has to offer. Without freedom we would be nothing and have nothing. Picture yourself in a communist surrounding or country…every choice made for you. Where you live, where you work, how many kids you can have and even what you will worship and believe. That is a world I could never imagine myself living in and why I am so truly in love with my country and would fight for her until whatever end. I am proud to be an American where at least I know I’m free…. Those words hold so much truth in my life and I am extremely blessed to wake up each day in this one of a kind country untouched and unmatched by any other.
