American Proud

We are all here,
sharing with pride what is so very dear
that for so many seems unreal
just because it is so ideal.

That is why none of us
should ever forget what was
and why our great nation came to be...
upholding the freedom and rights of the We,
as America's founding fathers penned
and each generation since has valiantly fought to defend.

And we should all be proud
to support with voices loud
all in other lands who wish to have the same
so that one day they will be able to proclaim...

"I am truly free
and can live and be
like the Americans I see."
