America In 4 Minutes highlight the ins and out of living in America from a social, political, and everyday stand point. The main purpose is to motivate and inspire others, while illustrating the global importance of having gratitude and American pride. I feel it's very easy to get caught up in our differences (social/political/religious/cultural), our past, and in the daily activity of life in America. Hopefully this poem will cause someone to pause, if even for a second, to take in just how blessed and fortunate we truly are. Thanks for watching. Links and full credits below.
