America was built on strong willed tough American people who were made out of strong fibers. But lately it seems that we are getting so caught up in political correction that it weakens those fibers that have made us strong. Say what you have to say, however you want to say it. Be kind, respectful and let others decide how they choose to let your words effect them.
