American pride has been taken the wrong way

One of my problems that I have always had is that as much as I love the United States, it seems that people who proclaim it only care for it.

Songs like “God Bless America” really bother me. Well, first of all, if you believe in God, then you know that God blesses the world, not just America. And it seems that we in America forget that. I keep hearing “God Bless America” everywhere. How about God bless the world? After all, we believe in a God who is totally capable of that.

I don’t know. I think we’re spoiled here in America. We care so much about ourselves we forget that we aren’t the only people that are important in the world.

Shane is one of the most respected people in the world and a lot of this views on things are similar to mine. This one is right on.
