What Makes This Country Great

by krys123

There are a combination of many mighty things and people
who and which make this country great.
What is found is that there are the people's ability
to form into one functioning in totally constructive unit
to handle a crisis
to the best of their abilities.

This does not matter of one's race, creed or beliefs,
for we as a nation have created
such a melting pot
of the differentiation of these people.
No matter who we are or what we do
we become a nucleus of good to perpetuate goodness
in everything we do.

From soldiers who fight for the rights and freedom
for our well-being,
or the ambulance men and women
whose egos are not at the forefront
and all these givers and helpers hold this nucleus together.
This includes all men, women and animals who search for victims,
during earthquakes, storms, floods or other maladies,
while helping and aiding victims.

We have even given our freedom, tenfold, 
and left our homes to help others.,
in their time of need
and during a crisis, this is at least what we can do
to help others
and is what makes this country great.
