Our pending 4th of July celebration has me feeling grateful for our nation. America’s Amexit had many sacrificing much more than a brief dip in the stock market.
Hundreds of thousands have died since, in defending or representing America in war and ensuring that our freedom stays in place.
For me coming up, 4th of July meant trips to the lake or pool along with picnics including watermelon wedges and spitting seeds.Fireworks and fire ants always in vast supply and part of the annual experience. Lighted punks initiated the send off of hundreds of bottle rockets and the tiny explosions of thousands of firecrackers. Roman candles today are my favorite as are the larger mortars that others buy to shoot off.
America with her imperfections is still the most amazing country to live in, and it has its fair share of incredible people. People of all races and colors have a better chance and opportunity to succeed today in America than anywhere else on our planet. Land of the free and home of the brave.
No matter how you spend the 4th of July enjoy yourself and our amazing country! Unless you live elsewhere, then enjoy that place too and visit us soon, unless you mean us harm, then kindly stay away and just send us a note filled with your thoughts instead.
