Given that today is our Independence Day......

The aspect of being an American that I am most proud of is the fact my ancestors were brave enough to come here to seek a better life....despite the risk of losing everything...including their own lives.

My ancestors were true Pioneers.....they came in the 1600s.....and later went westward to California during the Gold Rush. I am proud of their strength of will and determination.....and without them....I'd not have been lucky enough to be born in one of the countries with the best standard of living overall.

So I ask the fellow Americans in here: What about being an American are you most proud of?

Happy 4th!! :D

the constitution of the USA is the greatest paper in recent history. It provided the frame for happiness for a century and a half, then it was hollowed out by our 'friends' through corruption.
