We’ve been living in the UK around 11 years. Our daughter was born and raised here.
She’s an American citizen, but she’s not really American. Not in the ways that count.
This weekend they’ll be celebrating the fourth of July back home, and I’ve been missing the USA a lot lately. I wanted to show my American friends and family that I’ve been trying… trying to teach our kid American values, so she’s not such a foreigner. This video was filmed on my mobile phone, over the course of the past two years or so. It documents my many attempts to mentor my child and instill in her some of the beliefs and convictions that have made my mother country great. You can actually watch her age as this 2-minute film goes one, and as she ages, she grows morally as well as physically.
Enjoy, and please share these valuable lessons with any other European children you may know.
