Why I'm An American Patriot
Benjamin Forshee
July 29, 2008

When you think of patriotism what comes to your mind?
I think of freedom and of how honored I am to live in a country free of terrorists and slavery.

Many people take freedom for granted . . . I for one don't . . . And so do most of my friends.

And each morning in school when we say the Pledge of Allegiance . . . I would be the only one in my class to know what the words mean. It's sad that some people discriminate our freedom that we had to earn . . . Freedom is never free.

My father is a very patriotic man and taught me everything I know about this county. He taught me respect, loyalty . . . and to stand tall and be proud of who I am. And to him . . . I thank dearly.

God bless the troops in Iraq . . . I pray they make it home safely.

And God bless America!
