America – The Beautiful

Happy birthday America!!!!

As everyone takes the day to party and drink copious amount of beer, let us all reflect on what makes the USA the greatest place to live in the world.

Sure, we have our problems – but a long long time ago a group of incredible people got together and forged perhaps the most unlikely nation that Earth has ever seen. A group of people whose values now, more than ever, resonate with the very foundation of what it means to be a human being. They hatched an idea that, against all odds, gained their people freedom from the chains that once dictated their lives. Let us remember how astronomical the odds were stacked against them – yet through grit and sheer power of will, these odds were overcome. Not only by a handful of men, but through the collective efforts of men, women, blacks, whites, and others who wished for a world without tyranny. 

There will never be anything more powerful than that of an idea. Beliefs, values, and ideas are the very things that have the ability to unite us all under one umbrella of equality and prosperity. People fight and die over their beliefs. They instill our convictions and passions. So in spite of all the evil we are seeing in the world, let’s not forget the fundamental truths that make America a place where we are free to love, hate, and everything in between.

I hope you all enjoy your Independance Day, everyone 🙂
