Dear Mr. President,
I am an American.
I am not of one color, but of many.
I am an American. I believe in the importance of sharing Thanksgiving Dinner with your family, and Fourth of July parades with your community. I enjoy the peace of Christmas Day, and the excitement of New Year's Eve.
I am an American. I believe in a kind and benevolent God, Who does not condone the taking of innocent life. I believe our worth is measured not by what we have, but by what we do.
I am an American. I believe in Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness, the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. And I believe in the Pledge of Allegiance to Our Flag.
From flag pins to poems, a surge of patriotism swept the nation after the attacks on 9-11.
