Very Proud To Be An American
In a time when most the world seems a little nuts these days, yeah I am still very proud to be an American, maybe more now than ever.
No, I am not hiding my head in the sand. I see the headlines about our nation’s economy and the current unemployment rate, but when I look at countries where so many people live a life surrounded in hunger, sickness, and war, I feel so very blessed.
As we walked through the C-5 (not shown) the look on the kid’s face was one of pure fascination. I was so incredibly impressed by the pilot (female) who spent time talking to Haley about what she does, how she got there, and above all for offering encouragement.
That same care and patience was shown in every flight crew member we spoke with at the 2009 Randolph Air Show.
The air show was a reminder of who we are as people, as a nation.
The strength of our country . . .
Our history . . .
When the F-22 Raptor flew overhead (not shown) the feeling inside of me was almost overwhelming. I looked over at the kid and asked if she felt it too. She told me it made her feel very proud.
Yeah, me too kid . . .
