Memories

At a very young age I learned to love America. My elementary school was big on patriotism. We had school assemblies where we sang songs like “You’re a Grand Old Flag” and “America the Beautiful.” There were also memorization challenges: The Pledge of Allegiance probably in first grade and The Gettysburg Address in sixth, for example.

I credit Lincoln Alternative School with explaining, very clearly, ours rights as an Americans, and how voting is basically the best way of thanking the people who died for our rights.

Do you think our Founding Fathers would be happy with America today? It’s a question I think of while watching the news. I didn’t want this post to be a political debate, so I’ll keep my opinions to myself, but I’d love to hear from you.
