Here we are. July 4th. Independence day 2017. America’s birthday as a nation. With this day comes a flood of pride, happiness and gratefulness to be a part of something like the United States of America. No matter the conflicts or differences, speaking for myself, I’m still a girl proud of the red, white and blue. When those words of the National Anthem ring in my head, I’m grateful knowing all that we can be and have been. Today is a day to remember all that our Founding Fathers set out to do.
It’s with a grateful heart, I thank them for their wisdom, foresight and time to shaping America.
Thanks to them, we have a country that we can be proud of through the years. A country whose freedoms I am beyond grateful for – and to the men and women who keep it that way.
Wishing you all a festive Fourth of July. I hope it’s as bright, shining and spectacular as it should be. Happy Independence Day 2017!
