There are a few things that those who have recently come to our country and apparently some Americans need to understand. First of all, it is not our responsibility to continually try not to offend you. This idea of America being a multicultural community has served only to dilute our sovereignty and our national identity. As Americans, we have our own society, our own language and our own lifestyle. This culture, called the “American Way” has been developed over centuries of struggles, trials and victories by millions of men and women who have sought freedom. Our forefathers fought, bled and died at places such as Bunker Hill, Antietam, San Juan, Iwo Jima, Normandy, Korea, Vietnam…

We speak English, not Spanish, Arabic, Chinese, Japanese, Russian, or any other language. Therefore, if you wish to become part of our society, learn our language! “In God We Trust” is our national motto. This is not some off-the-wall Christian, right wing, political slogan. It is our national motto. It is engraved in stone in the House of Representatives, in our Capitol and it is printed on our currency. We adopted this motto because Christian men and women on Christian principles founded this nation and this is clearly documented throughout history. If it is appropriate for our motto to be inscribed in the halls of our highest level of Government, then it is certainly appropriate to display it on the walls of our schools. God is in our pledge, our National anthem and nearly every patriotic song and in our founding documents. We honor His birth, death and resurrection as holidays and we turn to Him in prayer. God is part of our culture and we are grateful for His blessings. We are proud of our heritage and those who have so honorably defended our freedoms. We celebrate Independence Day, Memorial Day, Veterans Day and Flag Day. As an American, I have the right to wave my flag, sing my national anthem, quote my national motto and recite my pledge whenever and wherever I choose. The American culture is our way of life, our heritage, and we are proud of it. We are happy with our culture and have no desire to change and we really don’t care how you did things where you came from. Like it or not, this is our country, our land and our lifestyle. I highly encourage you to take advantage of one other great American freedom: “The Right to Leave.”
