TRUE AMERICAN - April 6, 2006

This week’s column comes by way of an email chain from the CCHS Class of ’55.

I think these men know what they are talking about, so I will share it with you. They were all ordinary Calhoun teenagers, served our country, their communities, families, and still are very loyal to Calhoun County and former classmates. I now have the honor of being reduced from “teacher” to “classmate,” because they pass it on to me!

“It is time to change from REDNECK humor to TRUE AMERICAN humor! Only I don’t see it as humor, but the correct way to LIVE YOUR LIFE!

You might be a TRUE AMERICAN if: It never occurred to you to be offended by the phrase, ‘One nation, under God.’

You might be a TRUE AMERICAN if: You’ve never pro-tested about seeing the 10 Commandments posted in public places.

You might be a TRUE AMERICAN if: You still say “Christ-mas” instead of “Winter Festival.”

You might be a TRUE AMERICAN if: You bow your head when someone prays.

You might be a TRUE AMERICAN if: You stand and place your hand over your heart when they play the National Anthem.

You might be a TRUE AMERICAN if: You treat Vietnam vets with great respect, and always have.

You might be a TRUE AMERICAN if: You’ve never burned an American flag and still get tears in your eyes when she passes on parade.

You might be a TRUE AMERICAN if: You know what you believe and you aren’t afraid to say so, no matter who is listening.

You might be a TRUE AMERICAN if: You respect your elders and expect your kids to do the same.

You might be a TRUE AMERICAN if: You would give your last dollar to a friend.

God Bless The USA!
