We have not forgotten who we are. We are radicals-wise, blonde, and nappy; green and eager, hippies and cowboys. We are native and new, survivors, heroes, fit and in wheelchairs. We are French fries and sushi, dreamers and scientists, rigid and bent, suits and clergy, temples and churches. We are proud, humble and still learning. We love big, gay and straight, wearing yarmulkes and sombreros, kimonos and locks. We are hunters and vegans (an all inclusive buffet of the rowdy and peaceful) We are brave. We are the world collected in a country connected by hope. We are awake and on fire. We have not forgotten. We are proud to say we are Americans.
