I agree with that statement you made Jennifer, and hopefully it soon will return to those suffering from a lack of it. I could write a book about how much I love the USA, and all its people. The first time I was old enough to figure it out, I finally noticed that in New York lived the very same Jews that the Germans attacked and killed in my history books. Now here, there were Germans, Italians, Jews, Gentiles,Black people, Chinese, and everything in between, every religion was present,and it made such a wonderfully colorful salad bowl of life. I would drift off and think about the old NY gangsters, the various wars that had brought all these people together in this one place. I would think about the grandparents and great grandparents who gave up everything so that their children could be free, a lot dying on their journey. I would think about the Statue Of Liberty, and realize they All had one common goal, they did it all in the sake of "freedom." There is no other country like the USA!
I love this video - hope you do too. It reminds me of the unity the USA represents, and just how very precious this freedom is for "everyone" who lives there! New York is full of the world's history, and I hope that its heart mends soon, and all can be as it was once. Doesn't mean we forget, but we somehow find the strength to forgive, and move on.

Please let the word in this song, "God" be whatever you choose that to be. I chose conscience.
