I have been thinking about this topic a lot recently due to the political and social climate in america right now and I think we should always be proud to be Americans and proud of America, but I don’t think we can be proud of the current situation in America. I think the current level of hate and intolerance has reached such a level that it has become the responsibility of each and every one of us to do something about it.
I think the founding fathers knew when they wrote the deceleration of Independence and the constitution they laid out an achievable utopia or equilibrium amoung the inhabitants of America and they knew it would be achievable if we kept moving forward and didn’t go backwards. As Abraham Lincoln(not a founding father) said “America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we faulter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves”. I think this speaks to exactly what we are doing right now we are destroying ourselves we need to unite and believe in america believe in freedom and believe that everyone is entitled to it.
