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
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

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
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!
