Why I am patriotic

Because we get to bitch and moan about the people in power and we get to oust them when we convince enough to do so.

Because America is advanced citizenship.

Because of all the countries in the world who became independent at that time, we are the ones who stuck the landing.

Because if you work hard and smart enough, you will win.

Because my father came to this country 43 years ago and spoke no English because he had a daughter and knew his daughter could not be all she could be in the country he was in.  But in America, she could.

Because despite the old white men who want us to never change, change is the only constant.

Because we will continue to progress despite how hard old white men do not want us to.

Because I know more people who are civic minded today than I did a year ago.

Because I have MEMORIZED the numbers of my senators and their staff HATES me.

Because despite it all, people still want to come here.

And because some white dudes in 1776 never knew that it would get this far and more importantly if those old white dudes rode on a New York subway they would not recognize the America that they started.

America is a vivid, vibrant living thing and Americans do not acquiesce.

We will in fight and continue to be deeply divided but we do not stop going.

I love this country as only an immigrant can.
