Independence Day

I’m proud to be an American where at least I know I’m free; and I won’t forget the men who died who gave that right to me.

I love that song and I love this time of year. I’m not sure what it is other than pride for my country, but whenever this time of year rolls around I feel like I have a constant lump in my throat and I’m ready to burst out in tears. The love I have for this country {even all its corruption} makes me an emotional blubbery fool and I’m ok with that. ;)

We live in a country that provides us with so many opportunities. We are the land of the free and the home of the brave. It’s an honor to call myself an American.

I know many may disagree and that’s ok. There is plenty I wish was different about this country, but when I look at my family and friends who fight for my freedom, I’m even more thankful for this country and the men and women who stand up for it.

So, today as you celebrate with you family and friends by eating delicious food, watching a parade, watching fireworks, and enjoying one another; don’t forget to remember and honor all of the men and women over the last hundreds of years who fought to create independence in America. J

Today we celebrate you America. Thank you for the independence you have fought for!

Happy 4th of July!
