Happy Birthday America

Tomorrow is July 4th. It is a national holiday commemorating the adoption of the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776, declaring our independence from Great Britain.

The United States is not a perfect country. I am glad it is not. Who wants to live in a perfect country? Perfection means there is no opportunity to grow and mature. The United States is constantly growing, changing, evolving. It was founded by men who are fallible but understood that a young nation needed guidance that would stand the test of time. The Founding Fathers created living documents that are still in existence today.

America is still the land of opportunity. Anyone can come, work hard, and make a life for themselves. This is what makes America great.

Happy Birthday America…
