I’m proud of my country every time I see the flag or hear the National Anthem. I’m proud of my country every time I read about how much we’ve fought and sacrificed in the last century alone to defend freedom. I’m proud of my country every time I remember that no matter who you are or where you come from, you can come to America and build a better life for yourself, as long as you’re willing to work hard enough. I’m proud of my country every time I visit the Duval County Veteran’s Memorial Wall, where I cannot keep the grief and love I feel for her from running down my cheeks, thanks to the unbelievable sacrifice millions of American soldiers, sailors, and airmen have made for her and for freedom.
Simply put, there is not a single day that goes by when I’m not proud of my country. I love her, and I would fight for her until my dying breath. America has given so much. To say I feel pride for her is an unbelievable understatement, but it’s as true today as ever.
Michelle Obama may not be able to understand why it is that so many Americans are proud of their country, and are willing to fight for her, and sacrifice for her. But it’s one that’s crystal clear to me, and to these Tennessee citizens, and millions of Americans everywhere.
