I’m proud that I have the freedom to do what I please—surf when I want to surf, work when I want to work.

I’m proud to be an American when I realize that this country is based on freedom of speech and many of the other freedoms that we often take for granted. I’m also proud to be a member of the ACLU, and to defend those rights that have recently come under pressure lately—fear of terrorism. I’m proud to spread the word that not all Americans are wanting a government that’s intrusive.

What makes me proud to be an American is the solidarity among all people that shows in times of adversity.
