CAN...Stand tall, in my heritage and believe fully in America!
CAN…strive for the highest pinnacle - or any other spot I so choose - it is my
decision, to be freely arrived at!
CAN...worship at the church of my choice - read whatever books, articles, or
newspapers 1 choose - select my own home, friends, job and associates!
CAN...sleep peacefully - free from the fear of midnight persecution - secure
in the protection of my rights!
CAN...fail as well as succeed - this is true freedom!
CAN...shape my own destiny - have my visions realized - achieve anything I
really believe I can!
CAN...fail and still be counted a man - gain strength and experience through
mistakes - lose it all, and start over again as many times as my spirit is
willing - until my dreams are reality!
CAN...grow as large as my dominant aspirations - be as big as I am willing to
pay the price to become!
...own my own home - start a business - invest in my future - climb to the
stars by constructing my own staircase!
CAN...compete and receive in direct proportion to my efforts - thank
others for assistance in my success - but look only to myself for my failures!
CAN...raise my family in freedom - and freely change homes, jobs, friends,
tastes - location, vocation, and avocation - but, most importantly - I can
CAN...because I am an American!
I WILL USE
This is my country. I will use my eyes to see the beauty of this

I will use my mind to think what I can do to make it more
I will use my hands to serve and care for it.
And with my heart, I will honor it.
