America (if you think about it) is a lot like High School. Cliques!

We have the Marines and the Army
We have the Army and the Navy
But don't we have one thing
in Common?
To fight for our Country?

We have the Democrats and the Republicans
We have the North and the South
But don't we have one thing
in Mind?
To do the best for Americans?

We have the Rich and the Poor
We have the Gay and the Straight
But don't we have one thing
we love?
The people who hold our Hearts?

Then we have people like Us
Who dont understand
Why people don't get Along

Who dont understand
Why we came together during 9-11
Yet at the end
we fall back to our

Who don't understand
If we have One Thing in Common, One Thing in Mind,
and One thing we Love.

Why not stay as ONE.
as America!

Great! Yeah your are right! I mean, I like politics but it is getting ridiculous. No one really cares for our country in Washington anymore do they?(dunno about P Obama though) Why cant we all just work for the best of America!=(

I am the author of my own life... unfortunately I'm writing in pen and can't erase my mistakes.

Very good! :) And yes it definetly does make you think, especially about how we all came together for 9-11,, I think that if we can pull together then, we should stick together! This is very good!
