Shortly after the events of September 11, 2001, historian and inspirational speaker (now Georgia state representative) Barry Loudermilk wrote an article entitled "This is America," which was published in a local newspaper in his native Georgia. Within a very short time, the essay found itself making its way around the Internet via email and garnering all manner of attention due to its blunt "America: Like it or leave it" stance. This article—in which Loudermilk talks about America's language, customs, and usage of the Name "God" on currency and official government documents—can be accessed by going directly to this link. (Note: PDF document; Adobe reader required to view.) Well worth the time to read these words of wisdom.
The Americans by Gordon Sinclair - A Canadian broadcaster speaks up for America, a country that has historically done much for the world and received little appreciation in return. Originally broadcast in 1973 on CFRB in Toronto, "The Americans" found a new audience after the terrorist attacks of 9/11—28 years after first airing—and is just as relevant today as it was back then. The above link directs to a page with both the transcript and the audio.
