American Pride Story

 A few weeks ago our oldest son NW brought home a writing project. It is called a ABC-123 story.  NW chose to do his about American Pride, he wrote this to honor veterans and to honor our flag. . It was challenging in some spots, and  may not be grammatically correct, or make sense in some parts .but the emotion of what he is trying to convey is felt.

A (1 word):America
B (2 words):became a
C (3 words):country of freedom
D (4 words):due to sacrifices of
E (5 words):exemplary actions dignified in order
F (6 words):for their fellow Americans. These sacrifices
G (7 words):were given from America’s servicemen. They gave
H (8 words): humility towards their country for it’s national defense-
I (9 words):intending to bring an end to wars and to  
J (10 words):justify other global problems before a catastrophe occurs. Although the
K (11 words):kind Americans remember soldiers legacies with a patriotic and prideful manner,
L (12 words): lesser minded Americans disrespect the soldiers who have or are serving this  
M (13 words):magnificent country. The latter type of American mentioned are people who are always
N (14 words):never thinking about how they receive such privileges as an American citizen. People of    
O (15 words):origins that differ from America are mostly denominated in terms of education, entrepreneurship, and sometimes
P (16 words):possession of property or living quarters. While these people suffer, the selfish Americans bathe themselves in                                                                                                              
Q (17 words):quarried privileges. What makes me furious is that the selfish Americans say that they are “proud Americans.”
R (18 words):Reverence needs to be established. The selfish Americans are oblivious to what America’s veterans and soldiers have endured
S (19 words):since the time of the Revolution War. From PTSD to the extremes of deceasement, all soldiers and veterans endured
T (20 words):traumatic involvements of all sorts. Do you see how hypocritical and disrespectful and how rude people can be towards their
U (21 words):utmost respected veterans and soldiers? When I think how people disrespect America I think about when students at school behave as
V (22 words):volatile substances. These students are shaming the American flag by laughing and mocking the Pledge of Allegiance - one of the main connections
W (23 words):with reverence and the sacrifices made by the servicemen of America. Always the simple things that undermine Earth's greatest things. Hearts are like
X (24 words):xenon when they are hateful- colorless. Hearts are ruby red when they are filled with compassion and reverence. People who disrespect America need to
Y (25 words):yield to the glories brought on because of sacrifice and remember them and use them with pride. The sort of pride that fills you with
Z (26 words):zealous desire; intended to fill your consciousness with the values of reverence. The values of reverence will take American pride to a another dimension of respect.


  1. He clearly worked very hard on the project, and his heart is certainly in the right place. I was impressed.

  2. Bravo Zulu to your son. Outstanding!

  3. oh geeze-louise - that got me crying. i first read it to count the number of words...then re-read it as a poem. it's a frickin poem!

    "hearts are ruby red when they are filled with compassion and reverence"

    crap! still crying. not sure what you are feeding this kid but keep it up!

    you know that i am always proud of Senior's service....but don't think for one second that i am not as proud of YOUR service!

    sending love to you all, always! your friend,

    1. Hey gurlie! Thank you for your service as well.

      Yes there is lots of emotions in his writing, sometimes both boys leave us speechless. Much love to you and Jam!

  4. +1 what Kimber said!! He obviously worked hard on that, as I am certain that the letters q, and x were hard to find appropriate words for. He did very well!

    1. Yea he had to get out the old dictionary and thesaurus, he as well did not want to use every day words. He made it more challenging on himself by carefully picking words that are not in a 7th graders vocab.

  5. JUGM & Senior,

    NW did an amazing job on his writing project. Please tell him Bulldog Man and I read his project, and we think he did an amazing job on explaining American Pride. NW deserves "A+"

    Sending hugs and love to you and your family.

    1. I sure will! And yea I am pretty sure he got an A on it, and I even think his teacher told him he has a flair for writing.

      Much love to you guys too

  6. Outstanding to both student and parents!
