You might be a Hillbilly If...

 To my friends--in the states and abroad--I received an email the other day that I felt just had to be passed on via my blog. It is addressed to Americans, as I am fairly sure that "Hillbillies" are just an American type culture. 
But, you can appreciate the values no matter where you live....
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

You might be a Hillbilly if: It never occurred to you to 
be offended by the phrase, 'One nation, under God..' 


You might be a Hillbilly if: You've never protested about seeing 
the 10 Commandments posted in public places. 


You might be a Hillbilly if: You still say ' Christmas' 
instead of 'Winter Festival.' 

You might be a Hillbilly if: You bow your head when 
someone prays. 

You might be a Hillbilly if: You stand and place your 
hand over your heart when they play the National Anthem


You might be a Hillbilly if: You treat our armed forces 
veterans with great respect, and always have. 


You might be a Hillbilly if: You've never burned an 
American flag, nor intend to. 

You might be a Hillbilly if: You know what you believe 
and you aren't afraid to say so, no matter who is listening. 

You might be a Hillbilly if: You respect your elders and 
raised your kids to do the same. 

You might be a Hillbilly if: You'd give your last dollar to
a friend. 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Take a reflective look at the core beliefs of a culture that 
values home, family, country and God. 
If I had to stand before a dozen terrorists who threaten my life,
 I'd choose a half dozen or so hillbillies to back me up. 
Tire irons, squirrel guns and grit -- that's what hillbillies are made of. 
 I am proud to be one!

I must be a hillbilly! And very proud to be an American & spouse to an active duty war veteran! :)

I think I'd fail on the guns - but the warm humanity - then I'm one too in my heart. And I love Christmas!
