United is defined as, "involving people or groups working together to achieve something." This is the concept the founders of the United States of America had in mind during the formation of our nation. Yes, we are a country made of various cultural, ethnic, and racial backgrounds, as well as with a plethora of personal religious, political and other beliefs. However, overall we respect and value each other's differences as fellow Americans. This has been evident during tragedies such as 9/11 and Hurricane Katrina, when we all united in mourning and work to help the affected peoples in our nation. Our military forces are one of the best examples of unity, as they fight around the world for freedom side by side, no matter what their personal difference may be (or even genders). In remembrance of those whom have died for our country, I pulled some quotes to honor them.

A quote by Founding Father John Dickson in his pre-Revolutionary War song.
"Then join hand in hand,
brave Americans all!
By UNITING we stand,
By dividing we fall".
if only the protagonists of futile murderous acts.understood and adhered
to these words, the world would be a happier and peaceful place!
Wonderful pictures and gracious writing, yet again, Arnoldo.
Happy PPF ♥
