We are a land built by many hands of many nationalities. My ancestors came to the modern-day Promise Land from the Isles of Ireland and Scotland. I count my blessings daily for the sweat and tears poured into this country, forging her into a great nation and making my life easier. I will never know the struggles of my forefathers and I consider it a great privilege that I was born FREE…
and living in AMERICA!

We pulled our resources to offer you a chance to win one of these cool prizes. Don’t miss out on the fun!
Good morning, kittens & dawgs! Tomorrow is election day. Many of you are sighing with relief waiting for it to be all over. It’s been a wild ride but there’s so much on the line this time around. It’s more than Red VS Blue, Dems VS Repubs, or Left VS Right. It’s about keeping our way of life as Americans.
I thought it fitting to share songs of inspiration. Tunes that speak the American dream, and dreamin’ in red, white blue. When I was little I dreamed of being a teacher, a wife, a mommy, a nurse, an actress, a singer, and even the president.
America is the land that dreams come from and hope for a better life.
Without dreams, hope is gone. This is the very reason Americans hold dear the ideas our country offers to every person.
My parents raised me with the idea of America’s greatest and while I didn’t understand everything, I knew people from other countries saw America as the promised land with aspirations of reaching her one day. I always felt America is the promised land.

Dear God, please keep ALL Americans safe at the polls and Your hand on the Trump’s & Pence’s families. There are a lot of wicked people among us. Steer the angry, hateful evil-doers away. Place in each a strong resolve to do what’s right for their families and America and finally I ask for Your protection on our election keeping it free from corruption. In His precious name I pray. Amen.
