Tribute to the USA

6 Nov

All Americans know what today is and in honor of being American I thought I would do a tribute to some of the most important people who formed this country.

Last year I had the privilege to attend the dedication of the Martin Luther King memorial take a peek.

President Obama’s dedication to the Martin Luther King memorial.

Thank you Abraham Lincoln for ending slavery.

Posing next to Franklin D. Roosevelt (FDR) the only president to be elected for more than two terms.

I feel truly blessed to be living in a country that offers freedom, and true democracy and I am optimistic that this country will persevere.

Don’t forget to vote and may God bless this country,
