think of this ..
most countries around the world are many, many centuries old
even thousands ...
Canada and the US. are comparative youngsters
and yet, despite its age, the U.S. has become a world power
when there is trouble ... they are always first to help and fight if need be
to keep the world safe
but sometimes we are naive and perhaps gullible
we want to believe that all countries are good at heart
democracy should be a right
but it is hard fought to attain in many cases
all that can be done is keep democracy strong
here in our own countries
be true to the core values they were founded on ... truth, justice and the American ( Canadian ) way
lead by example
and let freedom ring
