Growing Up Texas-American

Posted by Jack Stephens on April 26, 2007

The blogger of No Snow Here writes:

The fact that the legitimacy of the existence of the United States of America is so rarely called into question (and usually then by indigenous activists or allies only) reveals a whole culture of denial, ignorance and collective memory loss. Sometimes I think about how I was proud to be American before I knew all these things. Like being in a basketball stadium full of people, all singing the national anthem with their hands on their hearts; my heart pounding, singing along, feeling so happy and proud. Needless to say, I’ll never feel like that again.
