Proud to be an American…
Not only do I LOVE that song by Lee Greenwood that will be played over and over again this weekend, but I adore our country’s history. I am an American history junkie, plain and simple. Can’t read enough about it, feel lucky that I was born here, tear up whenever I hear the Declaration of Independence being read, well, you get the picture.
American history is full of vibrant stories and colorful characters who had big dreams and a crop full of courage. Our Founders were fearless really, and justly earned the right to call our country the land of the free and home of the brave. I’m not sure what they would think about the fruits of their labor now…but, then that is a completely different discussion, isn’t it?
Anyway, the other day I was reading a magazine and took the American Citizenship Test? Have you ever done that…taken the test that immigrants must take before they can become a citizen of the United States?
Go ahead, take stab at it, just for fun. Then come back here and tell me how well you fared? There are many sites that provide this but I like the one over at the History Channel. It has cool features and keeps track of your score as you go along.
Go for it and good luck!
