Celebrating America

This year’s presidential race has, perhaps as much as any in our nation’s history, greatly stirred the emotions of a variety of groups. Everyone declaring their opinion as to who should be whose running mate, lifelong democrats declaring their support for the republican candidate, and Protesters marching on Invesco Field all remind us of a wonderful catchphrase – only in America!

So many people say so many things about what they disagree with and even hate about America. Nevertheless, at the end of the day they must recognize the fact that the only reason they are able to say what they say is because they are in America.

Even though it was written a whole presidential term ago, an article written by Dinesh D’Souza titled “10 things to celebrate: Why I’m an anti-anti-American” is as relevant as it was four years ago.
D’Souza candidly admits:

“As an immigrant who has chosen to become an American citizen, I feel especially qualified to say what is special about America. Having grown up in a different society — in my case, Bombay, India — I am not only able to identify aspects of America that are invisible to the natives, but I am acutely conscious of the daily blessings that I enjoy in America.”

This article is something we “natives” need to hear.
