I was rejuvenated by John McCain's nomination acceptance speech. It inspired me to take off my little Republican hat and put on my big American hat. I realize "country" is bigger than political parties.

My "country" is U.S. Constitution appreciation and safeguarding. My "country" is "we the people" and "one nation under God" comprehension and acceptance. My "country" is love and service. Think big — think "country"! Think phenomenal. Think we are all God's children!

Go McCain-Palin-USA!
