America the Beautiful

            Every American has an opinion. Every American has a voice. We as citizens of this nation should respect the differences in our brothers and sisters in this country. Anger, Racism, Negativity, and Hatred, towards your fellow human being for their desire to use their voice, just as you did, is asinine. It reflects badly not only on you but also the nation. I am proud to live in a nation where I am granted freedoms as a woman to work, vote and choose my own religious path. I give thanks to all my veterans and military for defending this freedom. I love my country. I respect her. I am proud to be a Texan and an American. I will show her this by not facilitating ill will towards my fellow Americans. Regardless of religion, race, political standings or age, we are all one. “I pledge allegiance to the Flag, of the United States of America, and to the Republic for which it stands, one Nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.” These words resonate deeply within my core and mean something to me. Do they to you?
