Is this a Halloween decoration or a picture of a house in Australia?

In Australia all our houses look like that, we ride them to school sometimes.

Oh yes, I say it plain

America never was America to me

And yet I swear this oath–

America will be!

-Langston Hughes, “Let America Be America Again”

Note: I’m planning on making this into a printed zine/doujinshi, so if anyone is interested in having one for a price heavily suggested donation, pls feel free to contact me!

 

This actually brought me to tears. Our country is younger than most, and had to grow up for most of its life by itself. It is far from perfect, we have had dark times, but haven’t we all. No country is perfect. And America is no exception, but, as Alexis de Tocqueville put it-

“The greatness of America lies not in being more enlightened than any other nation, but rather in her ability to repair her faults.”

And I am proud to be an American.

 

Wow, that’s great! De Tocqueville had lots of insight far beyond his time as it came to the young US, which is really interesting to reflect on. I’m glad you enjoyed this comic, and long live the US!

"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness."

-

From the second paragraph of the Declaration of Independence, adopted 4 July 1776.

The key to the Declaration, the part that survives in collective memory and which underwrites The American Dream, is the opening clauses of the second paragraph… These words speak to us. It’s not only that they laid the foundations for sweeping social movements like the struggle to end slavery, and thus created a recognizably modern United States. These words actually structure the minutiae of everyday existence.
