Monica Miller Thank you for your friendship. Like you,I was raised to love and value our country and its freedoms. I agree that so many don't know because they're no longer taught. Keep up the good work. Once life settles down a little (I'm trying to promote my first book) I'd love to read AMERICAN AMARANTH.
