I CAN...stand tall, in my heritage and believe fully in America!

I CAN...strive for the highest pinnacle...or any other spot I so choose...it is my decision, to be freely arrived at!

I CAN...worship at the church of my choice...read whatever books, articles, or newspapers I choose... select my own home, friends, job and associates!

I CAN...sleep peacefully...free from the fear of midnight persecution. .. secure in the protection of my rights!

I CAN...fail as well as succeed...this is true freedom!

I CAN...shape my own destiny...have my visions realized...achieve anything I really believe I can!

I CAN...fail and still be counted a man...gain strength and experience through mistakes...lose it all, and start over again as many times as my spirit is willing...until my dreams are reality!

I CAN...grow as large as my dominant aspirations... be as big as I am willing to pay the price to become!

I CAN...own my own home...start a business...invest in my future... climb to the stars by constructing my own staircase!

I CAN...compete and receive in direct proportion to my efforts...thank others for assistance in my success...but look only to myself for my failures!

I CAN...raise my family in freedom...and freely change homes, jobs, friends, tastes... location, vocation, and avocation... but, most importantly... I can change myself!

I CAN...because I am an American!
