For Real

Original post here

Some Americans are brown. Some are white. Some are black. Some are some combination thereof. Some are Pacific Islanders. Some are indigenous people to this land. Some are from families that owned slaves. Some are from families that were enslaved. Some can trace their lineage back to the Mayflower. Some are recent immigrants. Some are religious. Some are not. Some believe in one god and some believe in many. Some Americans think George Bush is a great guy. Some Americans think Barack Obama is a great guy. Some Americans don’t like either one of them. All of them are real Americans.

I am a real person. And so are you.

This letter made me happy. I think it should be one of those viral things, that gets mailed around the internet so everyone can see it. Therefore, I”ll start!
