Happy Birthday America!
Seems silly doesn’t it, when you realize that this is what we are in fact celebrating. I have to wonder why America has never been made a red, white and blue birthday cake with giant sparklers on top to celebrate its years in existence, much as we human beings tend to celebrate our own.
Regardless, it is America’s birthday and it is a day for all of us to be proud of who we are and where we come from and where our nation is going in terms of its plays on the world stage.
Whether you choose to celebrate it or not, I’ve painted my nails red with silver and blue sparkles like I do every year and I’m gonna have a good time with my family as we peruse the various vendors in the public park, then go watch the fireworks show, and afterwards, I’ll stare at my nails for two hours while we get out of our parking spot.
Happy 4th America!
