It does not take much for me to be thankful. In two days, it will be July 4th. I celebrate America every day of the year. I am very thankful to be a naturalized American citizen. Where would I be without coming to America? I shudder when I think about the possible answers to this question. Originally, from Port-au-Prince Haiti, I came to the United when I turned 10. I worked hard, took advantage of all that was available to me and went to college. I honestly, do not think I would be alive today, had I not come to America.
Would I be among those living in tent city because of the 2010 earthquake? Would I even be alive? I try my best not to ponder upon these things, but being human, these thoughts do cross my mind. I think in some ways it is good because it is a constant reminder that I should always remain thankful for what I have. Therefore, in celebration of July 4th 2012, I am going to share a poem I wrote many moons ago. I LOVE YOU AMERICA! HAPPY 4th OF JULY TO ALL!
I love America land of majesty
land of great opportunities.
I love America land that bears
the world’s burden on her shoulders
I love America land that dares
to care like none other
I love America
I salute you
I would be destitute without
your absolute pursuit of
liberty for all
I love America land of great resolute
I attribute all of my successes to you!
