HAPPY BIRTHDAY AMERICA!
with all that's going on in these days, i am so very thankful, and proud, to be an american.
yes, there are partys, bbq's, potatoe salad, water games, and yes, my very favorite... fireworks! but lets still please remember why we are celebrating this day in the first place.
this is the day that america was born. born of hope and struggle. hard fought freedoms for all. freedom.
let us remember also those who have, and are still at this very moment, fighting for this freedom. our flag represents so so much. and i love it. my god i love it.
yes, i'm the one who gets emotional when i hear the 'star bangled banner', and sing along to every word. everyone should know the words to it. and yes, i get emotional when i think of this county's natural beauy and wonders. and it's people. i love this county's people.
i love america. america. america.
i wish all of you and yours a very happy and safe 4th of july!
be well :)
