To Kill an American

To Kill an

You probably missed it in the rush of last week, but there was  actually a report that someone in had published in a newspaper an  offer of a reward to anyone who killed an American, any American. So an Australian dentist wrote an editorial the following day to let everyone know what an American is. So they would know when they found one. 

“An American is English, or French, or Italian, Irish, German, Spanish, Polish, Russian or Greek. An American may also be Canadian, Mexican, African, Indian, Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Australian, Iranian, Asian, or Arab, or Pakistani or Afghan. An American may also be a Comanche, Cherokee, Osage, Blackfoot, Navaho, Apache, Seminole or one of the many other tribes known as native Americans.

An American is Christian, or he could be Jewish, or Buddhist, or Muslim. In fact, there are more Muslims in America than in .   The only difference is that in America they are free to worship as each of
them chooses. An American is also free to believe in no religion. For that he will answer only to God, not to the government, or to armed thugs claiming to  s peak for the government and for God.

An American lives in the most prosperous land in the history of the world. The root of that prosperity can be found in the Declaration of Independence, which recognizes the God given right of each person to the pursuit of happiness.

An American is generous. Americans have helped out just about every other in the world in their time of need, never asking a thing in return. When Afghanistan was over-run by the 20 years ago, Americans came with arms and supplies to enable the people to win back their country!

As of the morning of September 11, Americans had given more than any other nation to the poor in Afghanistan. Americans welcome the best of  everything…the best products, the best books, the best music, the best , the best services. But they also welcome the least.

The national symbol of America, , welcomes your tired and your poor, the wretched refuse of your teeming shores, the homeless, tempest tossed. These in fact are the people who built America. Some of them were working in the the morning of September 11, 2001 earning a better life for their families. It’s been told that the victims were from at least 30 different countries, cultures, and first languages, including those that aided and  a betted the terrorists.

So you can try to kill an American if you must. did. So did General Tojo, and Stalin, and Mao Tse-Tung, and other blood-thirsty tyrants in the world. But, in doing so you would just be killing yourself. Because 
Americans are not a particular people from a particular place. They are the embodiment of the human spirit of freedom. Everyone who holds to that spirit, everywhere, is an American.”

Please keep this going!
Pass this around the World ?
Then pass it around again.
It says it all, for all of us!
