Dear USA,
While visiting my little sis in New York...I saw a your flag floating down the street in a sea full of people. So, naturally, I followed it to see where it was going. How beautiful those red, white, and, blue colors floated carelessly through the streets of downtown New York City. A man held tightly to the flag while a group of tourists followed faithfully behind him. It left an impression... watching those people scurry to keep up with their only point of reference...your flag. It remiinded me how grateful I am for our nations freedoms. I promise to not take for granted the opportunities you offer us each and every day. Thank you for letting me live here.
Yours truly,
-cristi dame
