Saw this over at HotAir, and wow. It’s a video response to Grand Rapids being listed as one of America’s dying cities, and the locals decided to show otherwise. And boy did they come up with a great video.
Watching that I was struck by, as mentioned by Allahpundit linked above, how American it is. Not just the American nature of the vignettes in the video but the very reason for it. Criticize us, rip us apart with partisan political agendas, bash us, do what you will, but nothing defeats the American Spirit. And that’s the message I took from this video: it may get worse before it gets better, but at the end of the day, the majority of Americans will do the right thing and defend our greatness, protect our neighbors, and stand together.
It’s what we do.
