    Default In sharing for freedom, we are all.... Americans!!!

    Christmas is drawing near and through this ROLClub Forum, we engage with countless people from various origins and around this time of the year, nearing its end yet again, it becomes remarkable to recap to reflect the freedom we all value and yearn for irrespective of each other's beliefs or success from failures, with prosperity to poverty however, we can look up as one...a community of Americans!

    YB. - cheers to all reading this uncompromising, unequivocal position.

    If you love freedom
    You are an American
    An American is English, or French, or Italian, Irish, German, Spanish, Polish, Russian or Greek. An American may also be Canadian, Mexican, African, Indian, Chinese, Japanese, Australian, Iranian, Asian, or Arab, or Pakistani, or Afghan. An American may also be a Cherokee, Osage, Blackfoot, Navaho, Apache, or one of the many other tribes known as native Americans.

    An American is Christian, or he could be Jewish, or Buddhist, or Muslim. In fact, there are more Muslims in America than in Afghanistan. The only difference is that in America they are free to worship as each of them chooses. An American is also free to believe in no religion. For that he will answer only to God, not to the government, or to armed thugs claiming to speak for the government and for God.

    An American is from the most prosperous land in the history of the world. The root of that prosperity can be found in the Declaration of Independence, which recognizes the God given right of each man and woman to the pursuit of happiness.

    An American is generous. Americans have helped out just about every other nation in the world in their time of need. When Afghanistan was overrun by the Soviet army 20 years ago, Americans came with arms and supplies to enable the people to win back their country. As of the morning of September 11, Americans had given more than any other nation to the poor in Afghanistan.

    Americans welcome the best, the best products, the best books, the best music, the best food, the best athletes. But they also welcome the least. The national symbol of America, The Statue of Liberty, welcomes your tired and your poor, the wretched refuse of your teeming shores, the homeless, tempest tossed. These in fact are the people who built America. Some of them were working in the Twin Towers the morning of September 11, earning a better life for their families. I've been told that the World Trade Center victims were from at least 30 other countries, cultures, and first languages, including those that aided and abetted the terrorists.

    So you can try to kill an American if you must. Hitler did.

    So did General Tojo, and Stalin, and Mao Tse-Tung, and every bloodthirsty tyrant in the history of the world. But, in doing so you would just be killing yourself.

    Because Americans are not a particular people from a particular place. They are the embodiment of the human spirit of freedom.

    Everyone who holds to that spirit, everywhere, is an American.

    Default We're all American

    Thank you Yogi, for printing that beautiful thing about my beloved country. With all her faults I love America. Of course, I've never been to any other country except Mexico and Canada, so I don't have much room for comparison. But I do know that Americans, no matter what color or creed, are big-hearted, generous, kind loving persons. I know there is an impression being spread abroad that Americans are selfish, hateful, war-mongering, etc., etc. but I hope that straight thinking people the world over will see how untrue that is. America has always been the haven for the oppressed. It alwasy will be.

    Thanks again,
