Thank You, America

Darling Americans, you deserve Fourth of July, and you ought to stand ever resilient, undaunted, and fearless. Beautiful America, thank you for all that you have done for humankind in our contemporary age.

Thank you for having liberated Iraq and Afghanistan. Afghan girls after the collapse of the Taliban were for the first time able to travel to educational seminars around the world, and ride the skytrain and bus lanes in Sydney and Kuala Lumpur, while learning at English-language schools. America, you freed entire nations, and for that bold altruism, you deserve every ounce of gratefulness. 

Thank you, America, for having saved my Republic of Vietnam friends from the clutches of communism. Thank you for having airlifted as many of them and their parents from a Vietnam irrevocably overrun by socialist forces. I thank you that my free Vietnamese brethren have citizenship today in North America and Israel, because of your Western ethical values in reaching out to peoples in worlds far afield.

Thank you America for your Biblical Christian, Mormon, Adventist, and parachurch missionary efforts abroad, over fourteen decades and counting, in these Asiatic parts. You have brought law and order, hospitals and medicine, reverential steeples and hallowed meetinghouses, community togetherness and hymn and song worship, and the systematic doctrine of canonized scripture to hundreds of disparate ethnic groups—uniting our hearts thus for the great Lord and Maker of unspeakable majesty. 

Thank you darling America, for having created the model for representative republicanism for the dozens of modern nations that come after. Your Senate and House of Representatives are the quintessential system for logical and functional democracy in many a country, and you deserve every pat on the back and excited handshake for the ingenuity of your republic.

Thank you Great America for having helped rescue South Korea from the vicious advance of Kim Il-sung’s North. Thank you for the beautiful Seoul that we know today, for the Republic there preserved, for the classicism and modernity intertwined in this free Korea, and for the promise of dignity, liberty, and spirituality every young Korean girl and boy possesses in this land liberated from the belligerence of brutal sovietization.

Thank you, America my beautiful friend, for your Shirley Temple and Steven Spielberg, for your Zondervan and CBN, for your AOL and YouTube, for your DreamWorks and Pixar, for your Carrie Underwood and Britney Spears, for your Ronald Reagan and George W Bush, for your Harvard, Stanford, Caltech, and Pepperdine, for your gusto, lifeloving zeal, and manufacturing pride, for your ranches and fireside conversations, and for your KFC and Burger King. Thank you America for having drawn the world in to you, and for having united the world and converged it on life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.
