Home Sweet Home

July 4, 2006

Happy Birthday USA!!!!! Looking pretty good for a two-hundred-thirty-year old.

There are a lot of reasons I love America, but today the most important one to me is that it’s home.

‘Home is the place where, when you have to go there,
They have to take you in.’
(from The Death of the Hired Man by Robert Frost)

Thank you, America for being my Home Sweet Home, God Bless You.

And I wonder if all the Americans who complain about how horrible life in these here United States is, who wear Canadian flags on their backpacks when they travel, who get that ugly pinched look on their faces when they talk about politics–if they moved to the countries they say are so great and are always saying the U.S. should be like–well, wouldn’t there be enough room for those who are willing to risk death to immigrate here both legally and illegally?

Just wondering.
