Where is the American Spirit?

I am very distraught that America has lost so much Spirit. We are in the middle of the greatest sporting events in the world, and the U.S. population cares less and less.

Many people have said they don’t care or that the Olympics are stupid. Unfortunately, they know what is happening with VH1 reality shows and what celebrity is in rehab. What is wrong with the U.S.?

I saw an interview from Yao Ming, the center for the Houston Rockets and for the Chinese National Basketball Team. He said it is nice to play in the NBA and make lots of money, but his ultimate dream is to play in the Olympics. That is what is prized in his country. Most countries around the world have similar sentiments, but not the U.S.

We must rekindle our American Spirit. It is what has provided the country we have today. If we don’t, we will see a steady and continual decline of the U.S. as a world power. Think about it…
