Thanks Australia? This Is Awesome

I received this today from my brother. It is written by a dentist in Australia. He characterizes the people of America better than most natural born citizens of America. He hit the nail on the head and I appreciate his words. I wish everyone in America thought this way. The problem with this essay is that it was not written by a dentist in Australia. The piece was written by one Peter Ferrara and published by the National Review on 25 September 2001. Why do people do what they do? Wasn’t this essay good enough to steal and give credit to the real author? Or did the original thief think that he could change the author and spread the story without being discovered?

THANKS AUSTRALIA THIS IS AWESOME

 

Written by an Australian DentistTo Kill an American You probably missed this in the rush of news,but there was actually a report that someone in Pakistan had published ina newspaper, an offer of a reward to anyone who killed an American, anyAmerican.

So an Australian dentist wrote an editorial the following day to let everyone

know what an American is . So they would know when they found one.

(Good one, mate!!!!)

‘An American is English, or French, or Italian, Irish, German, Spanish , Polish,

Russia or Greek. An American may also be Canadian, Mexican, African, Indian,

Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Australian, Iranian, Asian, or Arab, or Pakistani or

Afghan. An American may also be a Comanche, Cherokee, Osage, Blackfoot,

Navaho, Apache, Seminole or one of the many other tribes known as native

Americans. An American is Christian , or he could be Jewish, or Buddhist,

or Muslim. In fact, there are more Muslims in America than in Afghanistan.

The only difference is that in America they are free to worship as each of them

chooses. An American is also free to believe in no religion.. For that he will

answer only to God, not to the government, or to armed thugs claiming to

speak for the government and for God. 

An American lives in the most prosperous land in the history of the world. 

The root of that prosperity can be found in the Declaration of Independence,

which recognizes the God given right of each person to the pursuit of happiness.

An American is generous. Americans have helped out just about every other

nation in the world in their time of need, never asking a thing in return.

When Afghanistan was over-run by the Soviet army 20 years ago,

Americans came with arms and supplies to enable the people to win back their

country!

As of the morning of September 11, Americans had given more than any other

nation to the poor in Afghanistan.

The national symbol of America, The Statue of Liberty, welcomes your tired

and your poor, the wretched refuse of your teeming shores, the homeless,

tempest tossed. These in fact are the people who built America. Some of them

were working in the Twin Towers the morning of September 11 , 2001 earning a

better life for their families. It’s been told that the World Trade Center victims

were from at least 30 different countries, cultures, and first languages, including

those that aided and abetted the terrorists.

So you can try to kill an American if you must. Hitler did. So did General Tojo,

and Stalin, and Mao Tse-Tung, and other blood-thirsty tyrants in the world.

But, in doing so you would just be killing yourself. Because Americans are not

a particular people from a particular place. They are the embodiment of the

human spirit of freedom. Everyone who holds to that spirit, everywhere,

is an American.

Please keep this going!

Pass this around the World .

Then pass it around again.  It says it all, for all of us. 

Please do not just delete. 

Pass it on first. 

Thanks!

  1. Well articulated. Why is it that people from many nations that seek to kill and maim innocent people from free and independent nations that violate the diktats of these nations, contunue to seek to move to these free and independent nations in droves? Why is it that there is no reverse traffic? There is something called collective responsibility. These nations, and their people, need to decide which side they are on. They seem to want to have their cake and eat it too.

    • Your assessment is correct. They like their religion, but they also like liberty.
