American Pride: Poems Honoring America and Her Patriots! by David G. Bancroft

While my wife and I were proudly enjoying (quietly without green beer) the Irish part of our respective family ancestry on St. Patrick's Day (March 17, 2016) ... my thoughts drifted to the upcoming Presidential election ... and missing the civility that was present in the past ... even during Ronald Reagan and Jimmy Carter vying for the Presidency.

U.S. Constitution and Old GloryThen there is the concern about honesty intent .... as it should be about ... what is best for our country's security (defensively and economically) ... not what is best for political purposes regardless of the long-term consequences that don't appear to be based on any facts (current or historical). Is it just cleverly veiled wishful thinking?

Now, with that said ... we do live in the USA ... and it is "We The People" who ultimately determine the direction of our nation ... even if it ... takes several national elections ... before the majority of voters make it so!

DiversityMore importantly ... our great nation has always stood the test of time ... becoming very diverse and enriched ... since the Founding Fathers signed America's foundational document ... the Constitution.

Marines raising flag at Iwo Jima in WWIIThere are so many bedrock reasons why the Untied States of America has endured and overcame every internal struggle and external conflict ... making it only better ... remaining ... "a shining city upon a hill whose beacon light guides freedom-loving people everywhere" ... and as the most powerful nation .... coming to the aid and defense of others in need without the intent to suppress or conquer ... always ready to defend the way of life that each American has the right to enjoy ... as given by the Constitution.

Fallen soldier in Civil WarNor can anyone honestly look back on America's history from a present day mindset ... and blame anyone today ... for the sad injustices ... that did occur ... as history also shows that these wrongs were eventually righted ... even at the loss of a generation of young men, who would have never felt the sting of death ... from a fellow American ... if their time was like today .... and not fostered by pass down prejudicial culture that too many leaders were of the same.

Let Us Never Forget ... September 11, 2001In fact, the founding of USA Patriotism! shortly after terrorists attacks on September 11, 2001 was based on fostering pride of America by her citizens and a better understanding about the USA from citizens of other countries ... underscored by the Constitution and Bill of Rights ... without political intent or content.

So, St. Patrick's Day is really more than just celebrating the "luck of the Irish" ... it should also be a proud reminder of the "Luck of America" ... that we officially celebrate annually on July 4th.

There are so many reasons too ... and none more important than those ... who made the ultimate sacrifice in defending the USA ... along with all the heroes who went beyond the call of duty placing fellow troops and country above themselves.

Byers Jr., a member of east coast based SEAL team, receiving the Medal of Honor from President Barack Obama during a White House ceremony, February 29, 2016 ... is a proud, moving reminder of how lucky America and Her citizens are for heroes like him!. (Byers received the award for his actions while serving as part of a team that rescued an American civilian held hostage in Afghanistan in December 2012.)

Along with the freedom of speech, religion, and other rights ... is being able to enjoy the majesty of the USA ... freely crossing state lines to enjoy your freedom to do so ... like the following video about a summer visit to the Twin Cities area.
