  • $\begingroup$ Could you clarify the last bullet point please? My answer below makes an assumption about it and I'd like to know where it stands. $\endgroup$

1 Answer 1


I think you may be ...

From sea to shining sea

Because ...

I am new!

New York City

I love my siblings.

the city of Brotherly Love, Philadelphia

Get that onion off me! It smells!

Chicago - the most accepted origin of which is a French translation of the word "shikaakwa" which in an Algonquin dialect means "stinky onion".

I am a saint.

St. Louis, presumably, though other cities might probably also work.

I burned and risen.

Phoenix, referencing the mythical bird.

I am an angel.

Presumably Los Angeles, but Gareth's question in the comment is very relevant.

If you follow along with me you'll see

that these are major US cities along a course from east coast to west, or as the American patriotic song "America the Beautiful" famously phrases it, "from sea to shining sea."

  • $\begingroup$ I did not know that about the onion. I had the sibling-loving and the burned-and-risen, which made it clear what sort of thing was going on. I have to admit I was hoping it would end up being something more specific... $\endgroup$
