America from its birth to...death?

The way I feel about America has changed a lot after our visit to Williamsburg in Virginia. It is always easier to understand people if you know their history, and I have learnt a lot about the birth of this great nation. I was attracted to this country because Americans stand for their beliefs stronger than some other nations, no matter what these beliefs are. A visit to Colonial Williamsburg helped to understand where this American passion comes from.

We visited Capitol – a place where in May 1776 the desire for independence was spoken for the first time. Legislative wars took place here and were followed by revolution. Governor’s Palace was extremely beautiful as well – Lord Dunmore lived here during a Gunpowder Incident when he ordered removal of gunpowder from the magazine. It resulted in a conflict that made him leave Virginia. Also we visited the very same church in which some of the founding fathers worshiped. College of William and Mary, which was founded in 1693, was alma mater for Thomas Jefferson and other accomplished men. Justice, faith and education were ingrained deeply in the history of United States since the beginning of it.

Getting to know how wholeheartedly this country fought for liberty helps to understand why people here believe in their dreams so strongly and convert them into reality without hesitation.

But was it worth fighting for liberty if so many citizens voluntarily chain up their hearts by murder of unprotected preborns? What the culture of death, laying hand on so many children of America, is leading to? In order to maintain its greatness, America has to stand up for the voiceless.
