YOUR TEXAS AGRICULTURE MINUTE
America is still the greatest country
By Gene Hall
We’ve seen a lot of negativity lately, but let’s not overlook our greatest assets.
We are a nation built on freedom. Our independence, fortitude and willingness to defy the odds are traits that endure.
Our form of government, though not perfect, is second to none. Determination and spirit carry us through conflict and strife.
America, the beautiful, is still one nation, under God.
But our differences also make us who we are. Like our food preferences—organic, natural, local or conventional. Our backgrounds. Our politics. Even our jobs.
America’s unique culture exists because she is made up of many. Man or woman, we all strive for the best. We’re passionate in our pursuits, yet sometimes flawed in delivery.
Be humble. Be respectful. The future is bright with opportunities. We have the dreams and desire to succeed. Our nation is still truly blessed.
