A comment by Valerie, Texas on a gentlemen's agreement
Dear DF,Merci beaucoup for the wonderful post on the 4th of July. Most certainly, DF, you are an American in your attitude, your outlook. Being American is a mindset, not always a matter of location at one's birth.
Blue Star Mom, please express to your son the gratitude and thanks of this Texas family. And thank you for raising up such a fine young man. Please let him know that his fellow Americans are proud of him and the job they are doing.
