Finding the True America

By Edited Oct 27, 2013 0 0

When we think of America and what it stands for and represents, we think of sporting events, our flag waving high in the sky on not just holidays, but everyday, we think of the freedoms we have, the ability to speak our mind as we so choose, the ability to wear what we want, to date who we want, to have jobs and careers, we think of the Grand Canyon, the mountain ranges, the beaches and all of our nation's beautiful places; we think of the first trip to the moon, the continual growth of technology, etc. Is that what the heart of America is though? While our country is beautiful and a place of opportunity, it is the people and the values we hold that make America what it is. Without the dedicated, hard-working, people of this country, America really wouldn't be quite the same.It is easy sometimes to get caught up in the politics of our nation. We argue with each other about important issues such as abortion, human rights, gun rights, animal rights, etc. While these issues are of high importance, we tend to forget why we have those rights in the first place. Our country has been through many trials and tribulations. We have suffered through a depression, we have made it through many wars, and we have come together as one nation and stood up for ourselves when we were attacked by the Islam Jihad extremist terrorists. No matter what side of the fence you stand on, be it be pro or anti something/anything, someone has fought for your right to stand up for what you believe, someone has lost his or her life defending your freedom to speak your mind when it comes to these issues. As a nation of much diversity and strong opinions we each have a few things in common and those things are that we share a beautiful country, we have the same freedoms and rights and we have a military willing to defend all of the things we love about our land.Our servicemen, and women, are not just men and women wearing uniforms. They are men and women that uphold morals and values on a daily basis. They know and understand the sacrifices that have been made by their generations of military family members that have fought and died for the things we enjoy today. They are willing to spend days, weeks, months and years apart from their loved ones if they must be deployed to foreign lands overseas. They are able to just stand there and take it when someone calls them 'baby killers' or when someone tells them war is wrong. They are not only strong physically; they have the most strength mentally and emotionally as well. The men and women adorned in camouflage and combat boots know the true meanings of our America and what this country was founded upon. They have people that will support and love them no matter where they go or what they do, and that gives them the knowledge of true love.So when you think of 'the heart of America', I hope you see yellow ribbons, camouflage and combat boots; I hope you see dedication and bravery, sacrifice and love and I hope you see that to know what the true America is, you must search from within yourself, and the values and morals that you hold. I hope you see that our nation is much more than a political playing field, but instead, it is a place that it is protected by people that are willing to fight for your rights to stand on either side of the political divide. In fact, it is this inherent ability to identify oneself as Democrat, Republican, or Independent that makes our country truly unique and special because it understands that a degree of tolerance is actually necessary. I hope you see that this country is more than a place of many ethnicities; it is a nation of people standing united as one. If you are able to see beyond material items, skin color and monetary funds and see that the qualities and characteristics of a person are more important than what they possess and if you can see that it is because of the men and women that have fought in the past, are still fighting today and those that will fight in the future to protect everything about our nation, then I can tell you that you have seen the heart of America and you have found the true America.
