American accomplishments

IMG_0536

I am not proud of all of the country’s choices, but consider these amazing accomplishments that make me very proud to be apart of this great country.

1787 Created the constitution Avoiding religious prosecution

“Good for us” Pun intended

1865 The 13th amendment Freed the slaves.

“Finally! I know, it took a while after to actually get there full rights, but we got started making things right and slavery is still a thing elsewhere. Glad that’s over.”

“Wait for it”

1919 Women get the right to vote “Bam! Took us long enough”

Now, I know there are many pros and cons, but these are some of the pros that make me very patriotic.

Also let it be known, if America wasn’t created with so many different cultures coming together. I would not have the benefit, of learning and loving in close quarters, all of the beautiful cultures this world has, and I know I would not have the same appreciation for the many diverse people that inhabit our awe inspiring planet.

Be thankful and work hard for you country.

We can do better yet.

Amen.
