America is Beautiful: Is it Still Okay to Love Her?
Happy Fourth of July, everyone! God bless America!
This week I am guest posting on the website of writer, photographer, architect emeritus, and Army Special Forces Veteran, Mr. Samuel Hall.
A graduate of Oklahoma State University, he served in the US Army Special Forces before beginning his architecture practice. He’s active in mentoring men and is lay leader and coordinator of men’s ministries in his church.
He’s done short-term missions to South Africa and Uganda where he conducted pastors training and ministered in displaced persons camps. As part of a four-man team, he traveled in rural areas of SW China to work with ethnic minorities and support the underground church.
He and his wife live near Salem, Oregon and are the parents of three adult children.
America is beautiful, and Americans have historically lavished her with praise.
But are public displays of affection for the Land of the Free going out of fashion?
What makes America great? Is it okay to appreciate American exceptionalism?
Who should we thank for the liberty and freedom we enjoy?
