Is Something Missing? : LUSENET : A.M.E. Today Discussion : One Thread

As I watched the spectacle in Athens Greece unfold, I kept thinking there is something missing. Suddenly it dawned on me: All of the contestants from the United States were AMERICANS. And am I glad to miss all the hyphens. No Black Americans, no White Americans, Just Americans. . . . Praise God from whom all blessings flow.

Be Blessed
