      Words can not express how proud I am to be an American. Particular an American woman.

      How did they get these images to be SO gorgeous? What have we lost in our modern equipment?

      We had a county once where everyone had a can do or get it done attitude. Now it's we can’t unless you do it my way and it's everyone else’s fault if we don’t.
      Our diversity used to be our strength! Now it just divides us.

      Lovely young woman, I hope she had a great life!
