Welcome to America    (Continued)

where we can't even keep our police officers clean.
Welcome to America: Where people and legislature see eye to eye;
where a democracy and a republic clash heads.
Welcome to America: Separation of Church and State
where we have only had two non-Protestant Presidents.
Welcome to America: A land of freedom
where women no rights until 1848, and could not vote until 1920;
where African-Americans were isolated from society until the 1960s;
where American Citizens of the same nation had to kill each other to abolish slavery.
Welcome to America: A Nation of peace
where we are always at war.

This really got to me and everything you mentioned is absolutelty true. Not only about America in specific but people in general and how we tend to avoid our problems instead of facing them. I love the way you structured it. Great job!

That last line really hit me hard because-- and I'm not even going to lie-- I did skip to the end. This is so original in that it reveals the issues of our nation by contrasting it with everyone's stereotypes and expectations. Crazy profound and fascinating; I'll definitely read it all the way through now!

This is awesome! Its so true... But it's a raw convicting truth. Especially at the end when you explain people avoiding to face the truth. It places a conviction into one's mind. I enjoy the realness of this.  It's a very good piece. I plan on sharing this with people! Keep it up, you're inspiring people.(:
