My own emotion and passion began to well up inside me while reading this. It is truly something we need to hear more often. AND it is based on one of my favorite verses.
What a beautiful sentiment! I can see it printed on a poster, with a flag or an eagle in the background.

Take a look at "shinning" in the first stanza--should be "shining".

That's one of my favorite verses; thanks for writing this poem.
Yes... you're linking of the US to the topic is perfect. There's so much promise and hope in the verse you quote at the bottom..."If" (only). Very nicely written.
This is perfect! I never would have thought of this angle. Very creative way to hit the topic square!
