I Am An American

I am an American. In my blood is the DNA of a Dutchman who in the early 1600s climbed onboard a small sailing ship to cross a dangerous ocean, He was seeking freedom to worship God as he was led by the Holy Spirit and also the ability to prosper in a new land.

I am an American. Within my blood is the DNA of men and women who carved a life out of the wilderness. They were farmers and hunters working hard to provide food and life necessities for their families. They were businessmen who thrived in a capitalist free market society. They were Christians who built churches and shared their faith with their neighbors.

I am an American. In my blood flows the blood of patriots who picked up their squirrel guns to defend themselves from an oppressive government. After the war, they traveled from New Jersey to Virginia to North Carolina and finally settled in Goosepond, Georgia.

I am an American. I am proud to carry in my blood the DNA of men who felt compelled to take up arms and fight under the Stars and Bars of the Southern States. Some died, some lost limbs and one man who was my Grandfathers’ Grandfather suffered greatly as a prisoner of war.

I am an American. I am blessed to have inherited the DNA of my parents and grandparents. They were and are Great Americans who worked hard and prayed harder while they worshiped and served the King of Kings, Jesus Christ.

I am an American, And I pledge Allegiance to the Flag of the United States of America, and to the Republic for which it stands, and now, we must again become one Nation under God and forever be indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.
