America- Land of the Free, Home of the Brave

Having begun my odyssey in the blogging community, I couldn't help but notice that many bloggers have definite views about their government. Republican, Democrat, Libertarian, and all else outside and in-between these traditional political parties inherited the same passion and are not shy to tell it, which is what makes America so unique from other nation states.

It has been said that Americans' are truly blessed but have forgotten the sacrifices made to achieve freedom, as my godmother tactlessly puts it to anyone who cares to listen. Generations have passed since the Revolutionary and Civil Wars and today, freedom is enjoyed and accepted and has become ubiquitous--the freedom that our forebears fought so passionately, many now take for granted.

Which brings me to this. Not long ago, Communist Russia was our sworn enemy, until former President Ronald Regan and Russia's Mikhail Gorbachev forged a bond that transcended politics and reached into the soul of humanity and in the process, led to the end of the Cold War.

Today, the enemy is world terrorism, brought intimately and devastatingly home on 9/11. The United States of America- the most powerful country in the world-fell victim to a terrorist attack and the men and women who died and those who gave their lives to save and rescue, have not gone quietly into the night. May we have the same loyalty, respect and grieving memory for our troops and allies who have paid the ultimate sacrifice in Iraq.

Americans' at home and overseas united, mourned and prayed, and began rebuilding the "spirit" of America. The enemy would try to topple a nation of ethnic diversity, but it can never contain and control freedom, for freedom lives in the heart and spirit of its citizenry and cannot be bought or destroyed.

During the 2004 election, America was divided; Americans have adopted different ideological and political systems-- the war in Iraq had taken its toll, but the people spoke and George Bush was re-elected. There are rumors that the U.S. plans to invade Iran, but perhaps not merely a rumor but fact, according to a journalist who stands by his sources whom he vouches are reliable. Pentagon officials were incensed when the story hit the newsstands, vehemently spewing nebulous statements, but neither confirming or denying the story. If the President decides to invade Iran because its nuclear arms program is still active, then it is only logical that he will invade North Korea as well. Can America sustain its economy on the domestic front by invading Iran? Iraq, Afghanistan.. how much more can the U.S. coffers sustain?

President Bush will soon deliver his Inaugural Address; what is expressed will hopefully heal a country rift with unrest and uncertainty, and validate his right to lead the world's most powerful nation. Make good decisions, Mr. President for an entire nation rests in your hands.

Are you a Republican, a Democrat, a Libertarian, or a member of another political group? Whatever group you claim, the ultimate truth will cast its mighty wings and overshadow any party line you choose, for that mighty power is, "I am an American". I am an American and I will make no apologies for being who I am and what I stand for. There will always be grumblings among a people of diversity, but some truths are deeply rooted in the heart. Let the nation heal and let us remember that a nation that cherishes freedom, must be prepared to fight for it.
