Flag Day - 2014
born in a land of great diversity.
From sea to pines, from sand to water,
Your creation is awesome to me.
Thank You for the friendliness of Americans.
Their smiles for strangers on the street; their love of new and different things as well as the honor they have for tradition.
You have given a refugee land enough space to be independent and a strong enough government to keep us together.
For this freedom I humbly say, Thank You.
