My American Daughters

I My two daughters love Two States Two ways, at least They love Maryland & Virginia They love English and Spanish They love their dad and Mom They love Democrat & Republican as American They know the Constitution didn't make Parties They Know G. Washington warned Parties Divide anation, when electing should take best 'man' For the job he refused to Name "king" - but Mr. President II My daughters proudly thank, work for America We can't say much, dear patriots, freedom lovers But they do data mining, sub-contracting for Feds I have seen some AWARDS, we sleep well And Jesus gives us a clean conscience as we 'talk' 'US Constitution,' "freedoms," national & global citizenship About academic freedom III Those who "jingo" about nationalism, what will you tell Jesus who reminded us: You are a citizen of heaven, not of this world? ( Reference: Paul's epistles, and Peters Letters in the New Testament." We are not one-dimensional "Americans" - but as with "hats" as a member Of biological families: know all the roles u play!

One should love the country one lives in .... may not be the one in which he is born. Nationalism shouldn't be driven to ridiculous levels of fanaticism ! But as long as a coutry gives us sustenance, we are bound to obey its rules and respect its constitution. At the same time think that no country is higher than God's kingdom ! Happy for your daughters , Anil brother !

,,,,,continued…….I want to say too that more people need to read this statement of love for family and adopted country. Adoption is a sacred thing — done with love. Type it up in a letter with short pre, even maybe quoting me and try sending it to ur local paper, or do that online? Ur work of pride & cummity respect may strengthen mutual understanding.xoxo
