I Am Proud To Be An American

I am proud to be an American because all those involved in the space program had “the right stuff” and were not afraid to undertake the journey into outer space and to the moon.

I am proud to be an American because the Wright brothers were not afraid to take to the skies.

I am proud to be an American because test pilots like Chuck Yeager were fearless to fly faster and farther helping to develop unimaginable technologies.

I am proud to be an American because Amelia Earhart and all early female pilots believed in their abilities and helped end gender barriers.

I am proud to be an American because the Tuskegee Airmen excelled everyday in escorting and protecting bombers in WW II while other African Americans were battling discrimination at home.

Why are you proud to be an American?
