This is to prove that along with the bad I can see the good in our country. (Might not be as long as HELLO U.S.A. though) and it's kind of funny. XD

Okay, so you tell me that it's hard to find good beneath bad,

but I'm telling you that you shouldn't be sad.

Our country is filled with life and joy,

everyday are new lives, new babies that are boys.

Our hospitals get smarter, trying to cure cancer,

and girls realize they want to be dancers (ballet, hip-hop).

The children once learned it was good to be bad,

from other kids who were mad at their dad.

But now they are growing and learnign new stuff,

no more fighting or screaming and getting real rough.

Our country is fighting, somewhere deep inside,

trying to beter themselves to be  filled with pride.

Now and again we chose to eat snacks,

but more often than not we try turning our backs.

People have gone on a 'health craze' today,

buying carrots for children after they play.

In the morning we teens grab a quick bite,

to fill up our stomachs and help with later nights.

Missionaries are traveling to our cities,

helping people, who truly need the pity.

Churches gather, and the members do grow,

larger numbers that people can really show.

Moral value has increased with all of the best,

we stand up in the highest above someof the rest.

We help other countries, though I feel kind of IFy,

I think about how their ecnomy is stuck really stiffly.

And now I tell you this and I give you a toast,

for dinner tonight I shall eat a roast.
