What it means to be American

Here is a beautiful post on what it means to be an American, by Sarah.

I really should wax eloquent all by myself, but I couldn't have said it this beautifully and I don't know that I would even have recognized these blessings. You really have to be an American living in a foreign country to understand, I think. As Americans in America, we take so much for granted. SO much.

Maybe I'll just become a clearinghouse for other peoples' wonderful thoughts. sigh.

I never understood patriotism until I LEFT USA. Now I get it. And despite all its flaws, USA IS the greatest nation on earth. Why? One word -- FREEDOM.
