America Has Left The Country

Part I

You will probably be shocked when I tell you this but…

Dedicate 2It’s time to let the “cat out of the bag.” The family has decided to pack up and move to Colombia. The way things are now it’s become too difficult here. We feel there is a better chance for us in South America.

It will be kinda hard to communicate at first because we don’t speak Spanish. It will be okay, we’re sure folks will help us out.

My granddaughter came up with a great idea that may help her in school. Brittany has written a letter to the school officials about the student pledge of allegiance. She wants everyone to say it in English so that she will feel welcome.

Country 1

Everything I just said is false.

America is the land where I was born, where I have lived all my life. It’s not perfect,  but it is my home. I always have and always will—be  proud to be an American.

Most of our kids feel the same way, only some have been denied the right to say it and show it.

Earlier this year some great kids at Fort Collins High School in Colorado came up with the idea of ‘Merica Monday. A special day to honor the United States.

They wanted to pick a day during Winter Spirit Week to wear the patriotic colors of their country.

Country 2
When they presented the idea to school administrators the answer was  swift…

“No.”
