I love the United States of America. At the same time, for all of our greatness, America is not the country it once was. If America were a man today, he would have lost respect for himself.
America was once built on compassion, yet our country now demonstrates a shameful disregard for its most vulnerable citizens. Inadequate care for our returning soldiers, insufficient support for our teachers and first responders, our short memory for disasters such as Hurricane Katrina, and our politicians' prioritizing their own ideologies and ambitions over the needs of their constituents are just a few signs of a cold-heartedness that has gripped America. If America were a man, he would be an uncaring lout.
