I am proud because I have the freedom to make my own choices, for better or worse.
I am proud because I have the freedom to practice ANY religion!
I am free because I have a right and the ability to become educated in any subject I choose.
I am free because I can become rich, or I can become poor.
I am free because I have found GOD, LOVE and FAMILY.
I am proud of my brothers and sisters who have also found freedom and success that our forefathers have sewn.
I am free because there is freedom of speech but that doesn't mean I have to take anything at face value.
I am free because I am not a victim or a pawn, I am free to choose.
I can be a carpenter, architect or an astronaut, thats up to me and my choices.
I am lucky to be born in a country which gave me every opportunity to succeed.
I am fortunate enough to have an education and see my friends die from old age.
I have succeeded in not letting other people bring me down, but I was fortunate to have been brought up out of darkness.
I am lucky that the cops arrested me for driving drunk, they probably saved my life.
I am fortunate that they didn't beat me to a pulp.
I am lucky for being a citizen, I am lucky that people 200 years ago understood my plight.
They did not make a new government overnight, they spent decades making things right.
They did not free the entire world but rather they freed me, so that I could tell you all.
Don't chose a new government in just one night.
