Na­tional Trea­sures

Proud to be an Amer­i­can: The peo­ple, place & things that make us unique

Albuquerque Journal - Parade - - FRONT PAGE -

Amer­ica has a lot to cel­e­brate. We’re the coun­try of front porches and potato chips, Con­verse sneak­ers and John Deere trac­tors. We in­vented the Na­tional Park Sys­tem that protects 84 mil­lion acres of wilder­ness. We brought the world the clear-eyed in­no­cence of Scout Finch and the joy of the high five. We’re the birth­place of bril­liant dream­ers who change lives in wide-rang­ing ways. And we’re the coun­try that de­clared more than 230 years ago that all peo­ple are cre­ated equal and have a right not only to be free but also to be happy. Here, Pa­rade high­lights a few of the uniquely Amer­i­can peo­ple, places and things that make us very, very happy.
