Favorite Quote:
A hero is no braver than an ordinary man, but he is braver five minutes longer. ~Ralph Waldo Emerson


This poem contains patriotism, an unyielding desire to sing my love for my country, and everything I learned in American History.

It contains quotes that fired up spirits like 'ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country.'

It rehashes true moments of American fervor, when seven brave souls "slipped the surly bonds of Earth and touched the face of God;' when Patrick Henry demanded 'give me liberty or give me death!'


This poem contains the war of 1812; the Emancipation Proclamation. It has four scores and seven years of history behind it. It's got the shaken knees and tear stained checks left from 9:03 one September day.


This poem will fight back when attacked.


This poem will not surrender.
