my thoughts on the tragedy

It's so sad that it takes a tragedy to unite a nation. All of a sudden no more mentions of "African-American" this or "Asian-American" that, everyone is just American. All of a sudden prayer and faith in God are the right thing to do. All of a sudden no more calls to celebrate diversity, but stand in unity. All of a sudden you hear the words on TV you haven't heard in a long while, about American democracy, freedom, independence, even though last week they talked about being friends with all other nations, that we don't want to offend anyone by anything USA does. It is truly sad that it takes a tragedy for people to become so patriotic about their country.
I was born and raised under communism in Russia and came to United States about three years ago. I am proud to be here, I am proud of this country and I would be proud to call myself American when I get my citizenship. I would never think about ever calling myself Russian-American or whatever the politically correct term might be.
It's sad to see where this country is going with the help of lawyers, politician, ACLU and the likes.
Fly your flag today and never forget yesterday.

Re: my thoughts on the tragedy

I am glad to hear you say that. I have long wondered why we are so quick to segegrate ourselves. In my expereince, it is those who have grown up in the lap of freedom and who have not understood the trials of not having liberty that feel the need to be "_______ Americans".

As someone who has grown up in America, I must say that yours and my friends from other countries who have come here seeking freedom's love for this country warms my heart and swells my pride in being an American.



Jeep...need I say more?
