Weighing In

So, until today I was pretty much uneffected by the "Birther" movement and whether our president was a citizen or not.  I viewed it as just another thing for people to complain about instead of working to better the country instead of trying to be divisive.  Then, I came across an opinion letter in the local paper.  See for yourself.

Here's the thing, by this persons logic, my own citizenship would be called into question.  Ummm, I hate to burst his bubble but I'm very proud of the fact that my father immigrated here from El Salvador.  I claim my heritage with great pride.  I also know that people like my father are what makes this country great in my opinion.  On the other side of the spectrum, my mother's family can be traced to native americans.  That's right, before the 'ol Mayflower docked.  I am equally proud of that heritage. 

Good gracious, people.  Suck it up, put on your big boy pants and support the man.

Dulce, I'm so glad you wrote about this. I wonder sometimes if half of the world (or at least half of the Americans...) have lost their minds. You are right -- people like your Dad make this country great. People like YOU make this country great. If you aren't a citizen, then I certainly don't want to be one.
