This Land is Your Land


We sang this song when I was in kindergarten. My daughter has been singing this song from kinder to grade 3.

When I was little I thought it meant that anyone who made it to America - this land was for them.

I still think this way. I still believe in open borders. I wonder how much of my current beliefs were influenced by hearing this song when I was young? I wonder what xenophobic people think of this song?
