Time for "USAmericans" to Stop Being Divisive.
When you say, 'I am an American,' what does that mean? It doesn’t mean that they’re black or white, rich or poor, Christian, Muslim, Jew or gentile, nor man or woman…
The plaque at the base of the Statue of Liberty reads:
“Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, the wretched refuse of your teeming shore. Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed to me, I lift my lamp beside the golden door!"
See how one group is making a difference
Julio Matta has brought together a diverse group of people to tell the story of the generations of exiles and immigrants who have come to this country, worked hard, defended and sacrificed their lives to insure our country remains the shores of hope, prosperity and liberty. It's called Mother of Exiles.
Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others.
Progress is impossible without change, and those who cannot change their minds cannot change anything.
George Bernard Shaw
What it Means to be American
Being an American is a mindset, it's similar to being away from your house but still being at home. Home is not a particular location or building. Home is the place where you feel understood, valued, protected and loved. Home is where your heart is. Home is what God intended all of us to experience when he created us and placed us on this earth. Home is being an American!
What people are saying
Eye-AmAmerican see me for who Eye am. A message ripe for the time!
Wherever freedom cries, our children past and present have gone to stop the rise of tyranny. Freedom has been our shield, honor has been our bedrock, and kindness and acceptance of humanity has been our shining light for all to see. Lets’ make sure upon their return we still stand as E Pluribus Unum. Support this great organization who challenges those who put our freedom in danger and are the very beacon of the true meaning of Eye-AmAmerican. You stand as Sentinels and we stand by your side.
I support and like the mission and goal of EyeAmAmerican because I am American and I want to see a better America for all of US.
Got it . . . The vision and goal of EyeAmAmerican is great! Thanks, brother, do you mind if I post the 'vision/call to action' on FB? I think it is a message that needs to be shared.
It's time for a change. Eye Am American, we are American. Let us unify as Americans. As Edmund Burke said, "the only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing." Rings true still today.
Feel the Pride and Experience of being an American! Migrate to the United States was the best choice that my parents did for us children. We could not thrive to where we are today without the belief that this country gives us the opportunity and the platform to immerse ourselves as Americans.
