America is not dead because others
have lost their belief in the
Constitution; the Constitution is alive because it lives in
of how or why our leaders sometimes lose their way, some Americans
remain true to their ideals.
As long as there is one or two of us who believe in the
rule of law, justice lives.
Some citizens have forgotten their ideals and their
aspirations but many have not.
Some never really understood how honor and integrity
hold life together and make the dream of freedom and
happiness possible, but many do.
The truth survives because some of us still have the
courage to name it and hold on to it.
America is America because of your love of freedom,
your respect for the rule of law, your hope for peace, and
your courage to remain steadfast even while others are bent
by fear, greed and ambition.
America is America because of you.
