I love my country, but I am not a blind lover. When I wrote USA in the middle of the page and started to draw, I let the words come unfiltered. Negative and positive attributes of our country walk hand in hand–just like in me and probably everyone else I know.
But the bottom line for me is I trust in God. I trust in God to change, heal, chastise, love, protect, encourage, guide…me and my country. Now if I would just listen!
Happy birthday, my country!
