LETTER TO THE EDITOR:

Ways to show we’re American

In response to, “The meaning of being an American”:

Being American means that I can contribute to help form a more perfect union for my children and grandchildren, even though doors have been closed.

I can help establish justice by voting.

I can insure domestic tranquility by being a good patriot and role model. I have provided for the common defense of my country by being an honorable U.S. Navy veteran.

I have honestly tried to promote the general welfare by volunteering my time to many political, church and social causes.

I can secure the blessings of liberty to myself and my posterity by standing up for truthfulness, caring, honesty, responsibility and integrity.

Being American means that I can be judged by the “content of my character,” rather than the color of my skin.
