“America the Beautiful”

(Patriotism and spirit)
By Thomas Faranda, Patriot
America is a place with a Constitution as well as a Conscience. It is a place everyone wants to visit and everyone wants to stay. It is a triumph of idealism and realism that is a tribute to the human spirit. Mr. Faranda will show you the value of your America through facts, stories, humor, examples and celebration of the spirit of our people. He has worked all over the world and his examples will make you laugh, cry and believe in the goodness and spirit of our America.

Our AMERICA is the bravest, sweetest, toughest, funniest place on earth. It is the place that everybody else wants to copy. It is the place that everyone wants to see and to stay. It is the place that communicates opportunity and success and freedom for those willing to earn it, to live it and to defend it.

AMERICA is the place with not only a Constitution but a conscience. It is a triumph of idealism and practicality that is a tribute to the human spirit.

The facts are quite clear about our AMERICA. From 1980 through 1989, 6.3 million newcomers legally immigrated to the United States. These people paid AMERICA her finest compliment, by leaving the land of their birth to spend the rest of their lives in the land of their choice. They learned what we already know–that our AMERICA is a great land built on the idea of liberty.

In this program, Tom Faranda will help people understand and feel the value of our AMERICA. He will use facts to show what our country looks like. He will compare productivity and opportunity with other countries of the world. He will use humor, stories and examples to relate the beauty of our country. He will use emotion to show what our country “feels” like. He will help all of us become better Americans by celebrating our AMERICA in its greatness.
