Why Americans deserve our respect

Why Americans deserve our respect:   Keep going America!   I’ve recently observed how the world loves to have fun at America’s expense when it comes to race and police excesses.   They hide their wrongdoings and hardly if ever protest whereas Americans take to the street for the wrongs of their police or government.Continue reading “Why Americans deserve our respect”
