It is heartbreaking that America is somehow perceived as a haughty, individualistic country with citizens who are solely self-driven for personal gain.
While drinking my morning cup of joe, catching up on world news, I came across this story and absolutely had to share.
Despite the reputation America has somehow obtained, it is definitely an inaccurate look at our country. In the face of raw terrorism, we find a victim who is a double amputee offering a birthday gift to an 18 year old girl, who also fell prey to the vicious Boston Marathon attack.
This story says more than, “This American is a thoughtful person.” This one story is just a quick glimpse at the depth of our love for one common thing: Our Country. So, in turn, we also share a love for one another.
Sure, Americans love money, a good life, a nice car and so forth. But Americans also love America and its people and its freedom.
In the face of tragedy and death, America stands up and says that it’s spirit refuses to be broken. We grow stronger and love harder when others try to break us down.
