I have visited many other countries and always been impressed with the cultures, beauty and people of other nations in the world. I appreciate the readers of this blog from around the world, and I have even been in another country as they celebrated their founding day. Today is our special day in the United States, as we celebrate our country’s founding.
I posted previously why I love my country, but I’m thinking the list might be endless.
In honor of my great nation, here are 10 reasons I love America:
Freedom – I have dear friends who fight to defend our freedom. This freedom gives me the right to do what I do without fear of government intervention.
Adventure – I love a capitalistic and entrepreneurial system of government and I’ve experienced both the ups and downs of our system.
Diversity - Every nation, race and color is represented here. We are integrated with diversity, which has made our country stronger.
Risk – This country was founded with risk and risk-takers are still applauded today. I would struggle personally in any other environment.
Determination – Throughout our history, Americans have had a desire to succeed at any cost.
Patriotism – We love our country. Period.
Volunteerism – When there is a need in the world, Americans will be among the first to assist. We may argue about our politics, but when there is trouble around, Americans come together and you want Americans nearby.
Beauty - I’ve traveled a great deal in our country. I can’t land on a “most beautiful”. Mountains, deserts, beaches, lakes, rivers, plains, and swampland. We have it all.
Opportunity – It’s still true. If you work hard enough, persevere through failures and setbacks, you can still achieve success in the United States.
Economy – Yes, I said it…and I mean it. Our economy has seen better (and worse) days. We still have much to be thankful for with our economy. Poor here is still rich compared to most of the world.
God bless the United States of America! Happy Fourth of July!
