I am an American. I live on the East Coast of the United States. I am lucky. This is the greatest country on earth. Not because of what we’ve accomplished, but rather because of what we stand for. To the rest of the world, we are an experimental sociosystem to gauge whether true freedom is possible on our planet. When we fail, the world fails. But when we succeed…whoa.
Whether or not you agree with our choice for president, the overwhelming positive worldwide reaction to our selection was proof that while we may be bordered by great oceans, we are not alone.
I consider it both a privilege and an honor to represent the human race in this great cultural experiment. I am an American.
