Happy 4th of July
Having majored in history, I always find myself reflecting on the true meaning of July 4th. After all, it’s about celebrating the birth of our country. I know on my own birthdays I tend to think about what I’ve accomplished in life, what I am thankful for, and memories of past birthdays – happy and sad. There is so much positive to celebrate this 4th of July. We live in a truly free democracy. We are a nation of prosperity, ingenuity, and entrepreneurs. Others look to our nation for inspiration and guidance. America is truly a wonderful country!
My birthday wish for our nation this year is simple, I wish us the fortitude to tackle our nation’s problems at home – homelessness, education, unemployment, and poverty – with the same headstrong, purse strong, and collective determination to prevail that our nation, for so long, has pursued in other parts of the world.
Happy Birthday America!
