This thread is devoted to Helen, myself, Marie, MimiWheeze, and countless others who are overwhelmed and exhausted by what we seem to feel is constant negativity and airing of America's dirty laundry at a time of war.
Helen, in another thread, outlined what she finds positive about America; unfortunately it didn't continue as the thread went downhill from there. But I'd like to devote this thread to airing out all that is beautiful about America! On top of it being a good history lesson, I think it will also serve as therapy for some if not all of us.
So what do I
think makes America beautiful? Helen touched on it before and that is democracy
. To me, demcracy really is a way of implementing freedoms. In America, we are free to grow and prosper and create, which is why
we are the most advanced and powerful nation in the world. We are the most free
, and that goes hand in hand.
Our country also has made great strides in promoting equality for women and minorities. We eliminated slavery, eliminated child-labor to name a few. This is one of the many reasons I love the USA.
Now, you're turn.
