America's greatest strength is her people

What we see happening that is unfortunate in our country is not the face of America or who she is.

On a positive note, we are still the best hope for this world. As one of the youngest and yet strongest nations of this world, we remain a free country because we try to represent what is good. Overcoming obstacles is our main strength and what moves us forward.

The faces of government change but the American people are a constant symbol of determination to change what we can. My mother used to remind me and my siblings to be thankful to be an American and never take that privilege for granted. My mom, a strong woman and true patriot, never let us forget our blessings.

America needs to stand by her principles of what made America who she is, in the past and today. Our unwavering symbol of what is good and descent is our greatest strength.
