I'm United States of American

For those of you who cannot stomach patriotism, read no further.

I'm proud to be an American. No, that's not it. I'm happy to be American. No, actually, I think I'm happy to be from America. It's something I don't care to rationalize or put into words. All I can say is that whenever I leave and come back, I swoon over this place--this land of the free--this home of the brave--with their purple mountains majesty and such. Other countries are good too, but this one is great.


  1. It's difficult to resist isn't it.
    I mean if you agree with it -- AND if you don't. (Didn't see the double meaning until this minute.)
    Welcome home.

  2. That's exactly how I felt when I got back! I love this place! Welcome back!
