Proud to be an
even in the middle of nowhere ...
Especially in the middle of nowhere...
that proudly and boldly celebrates being an American...
Booneshill Rd, Delina, Tennessee
A 4-way STOP in rural America
with an old country store on the corner...
An American flag is a recognized symbol of our country all over the world.
But, Old Delina Country Stor(e) is a symbol of our country, too.
A symbol of our liberty to pursue
T H E A M E R I C A N D R E A M...
Small independent stores owned by individuals, not corporate America,
are symbols that the American Dream is alive and thriving.
The Dream to be whatever we want and to do whatever we want
without a dictatorial government, deep-seated century-old traditions, or a rigid caste system
forcing us into pre-determined paths
of where we live and of which vocation we choose.
Life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness
are still the dreams of people everywhere.
The United States of America
is still a dream destination for oppressed, desperate people worldwide.
Our system is flawed, not perfect, but there is no other place I want to call home.
To be able to sit peacefully on my porch,
to own a small business, and
never to fear for my freedom
Proud to be an American
on this Memorial Day and every day of the year.
Thank you everyone who has served or is serving our country
to protect all that we cherish to maintain the American Dream,
a Dream that is unique for each of us.
What makes you proud to be an American?
Please join me at these inspiring places for more joy of living.
