"Perhaps a man's character was like a tree, and his reputation like its shadow; the shadow is what we think of it, the tree is the real thing." Recollected Words of Abraham Lincoln compiled and edited by Don E. Fehrenbacher and Virginia Fehrenbacher (Stanford, Stanford University Press, 1996), p. 43.
Heyyy! Alfred F. Jones here, otherwise known as the United States of America, rocking your world.
I officially became a country of my own when I declared independence on July 4th 1776! Long time ago, kiddos. And now America is all grown up! I'm the land of the free, home of the brave, and I'm beautiful, don't be jealous. ;] Also, I'm addicted to Starbucks™ as well as McDonalds™. Seriously. Every state has it or it's officially not a state.
(They're awesome movies, btw.)
I am dedicated to the notion that all men and women are created equal. My current President is Barack Obama, elected as the 44th President of the United States. Currently I am involved in the War On Terror™ and am in a Financial Crisis™ thus if I seem a little busy right now, I am! I can handle it!
P.S. If you want to see the Artist who made this amazing likeness of me, it's at this link. It's a Japanese site and you may need to register to see all of their stuff. There are tutorials on how to get an I.D. on this site, which is called Pixiv, by the way. Hope I helped!
