I just started a new job and this was posted on the bulletin board. I thought since 9-11 is coming soon that this was appropriate:

There was actually a report that someone in Pakistan had published in a newspaper an offer of a reward to anyone who killd an American, any American.

So an Australian dentist wrote the following to let everyone know what an American is, so they would know when they found one.

An American is English, or French, or Italian, Irish, Greman, Spanish, Polish, Russian or Greek. An American may also be Canadian, Mexican, African, Indian, Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Australian, Iranian, Asian, or Arab, or Pakistani, or Afghan. An American may also be Cherokee, Osage, Blackfoot, Navajo, Apache, Seminole or any one of the many tribesknown as Native Americans.

An American is Christian, or he could be Jewish, or Buddhist, or Muslim. In fact, there are more Muslims in American than Afghanistan. The only difference is that in America they are free to worship as each of them chooses. An American is also free to believe in no religion. For that he will answer only to God, not to the government, or to armed thugs claiming to speak for the government and for God.

An American is from the most prosperous land in the history of the world. The root of that prosperity can be found in the Declaration of Independence, which recognizes the God given right of each person the persuit of happiness.
An American is generous. Americans have helped out just about every other naton in the world in their time of need. When Afghanistan was overrun by the Soviet army 20 years ago, Americans came with armsand supplies to enable the people to win back their country. As of the morning of September 11, Americans had given more than any other nation to the poor in Afghanistan.

Americans welcome the best, the best products, the best books, the best music, the best food, the best athletes. But they also welcome the least.
