THOUGHTS: Jeff Shadwick, Judge for the 55th Judicial District Court in Harris County Shares Why He's a Proud American with Aubrey
# # # #
AUBREY R. TAYLOR: Why are you proud to be an American?
JUDGE JEFF SHADWICK: "I am proud to be an American because we are the only country, ever, to be founded upon an idea rather than geography or ethnicity. The idea is that all men are created equal; that we are endowed by our Creator with certain inalienable rights, among which are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. All anyone has to do is "buy in" to become an American. You cannot become French, or become Chinese, but you can become American. It is the origin of our country around an idea that makes this so.
America is the greatest force for good in history. I am proud of that."
