Dear Editor,

I watched the Presidential Inauguration with pride. I am a citizen of the greatest country in the world.

Abraham Lincoln freed the slaves. We have come a long way. we now have an African American President serving his second term in office.

This is America, the land of the free and the home of the brave. How would you like to have your mother-in-law live with you in the White House? That’s a first. We have a popular Vice-President, Joe Biden, and his wife, Jill, who makes everything just about perfect because they compliment the President.

America prevails and always arises to the occasion. These were the words of the first Speaker with liberty and justice for all. And last, we have it all. “O beautiful, for spacious skies, for amber waves of grain; for purple mountain majesty, above the fruited plain. America, America, God shed His Grace on thee, and crown thy good, with brother hood, from sea to shining sea.”

God Bless the USA!
