There are people who say they hate America

They are ashamed of who we are and what we stand for

There are people who are envious of our wealth, our natural resources and the hope we shine upon the world

The abundance of the many things that we enjoy, and take for granted daily

The things that others would gladly kill to acquire, all in the name of some misguided ideal

Or greed and envy

And to squelch our many voices that shout from every corner of America, “Let freedom ring!”

Freedom for everyone to enjoy the way of life that we have all become accustomed to

Freedom to say and think the things that we wish to express

Freedom to live, work and travel to the places we prefer

Those wonderful freedoms that were paid for with blood, sweat and tears

Yet, we have become forgetful of the great sacrifices of those who have stood before us

Those men and women who have provided us with the plentiful bounty and freedoms we now enjoy

And as much as we revel in the awesome man-made structures and the cities that we have built,

It’s the beauty of her mountains, lakes and rivers that makes America truly unique in this world

The deserts, the wide open plains, the oceans, the bays and coves, the swamps and Everglades

No other country in this world has the variety of natural wonders

From sea to shining sea, and all places in between

And so I say to those who would try to tear us down

I will not go quietly into that long goodnight

I will stand with my forefathers and fight for our rights

I will defend all that is good and give all I have to give

Although I may fall, life without freedom is no way to live

Second only to my faith in God, I reaffirm my loyalty to my country:

I pledge allegiance, to the flag

Of the United States of America

And to the Republic, for which it stands

One nation, under God, indivisible

With liberty and justice for all
