Recently, I came across an area on a local highway where American flags were on display for the upcoming Veterans Day celebration. Under each flag was the name of a fallen hero, and the war or country where the ultimate sacrifice was made. Not one of these occurred in the United States. Every flag represented the life of an American who gave their all, so that freedom might be attained in other lands. It made me proud to be an American.

I wonder how those fallen heroes would have reacted, in 2008, when newly elected President Obama made comments overseas about America’s arrogance, or the soon-to-be first lady’s comment about being proud of America for the first time in her life, as her husband campaigned for office.

This does not sound like leadership honoring its heritage.

Our country is an experiment in freedom unlike any other nation. We have grown through many adversities during our 230 years, and there is always room for improvement. But, there is no other nation, ordained for good by God, such as the United States of America. We need leadership that accentuates that principle, not derides it.
