What Makes This Country Great

Take a look at the Olympics folks. Look at the competitors for each country and what do you see? Except for a few select countries (Great Britain and France to name two), all of the other countries have participants that share a common heritage and ethnic background. The United States is truly a melting pot and mix of cultures, races and religions. It takes an event like this to make this abundantly clear. The United States is a country that will accept anyone and give that person a chance to succeed based upon the effort that person puts out. I was watching the United State play China last night in softball. The Chinese team only had Chinese players. The United States had white, black, hispanic and asian players to name what I could see. We have made this into our strength. Of course, at times, we do get a bit divided into groups, but when needed, we all come together for a common goal.

So, the next time you hear someone tear down this country, remember one of the reason why this country is great. We all have faults, but it is our diversity that makes us strong.
