Fourth of July
Today we celebrate the adoption of the Declaration of Independence as a new nation separating ourselves from Great Britain. Our forefathers came here as a group of immigrants and settled on new land to create a new nation with a different set of laws from where they came from. They were entrepreneurs and I must note again that they were immigrants.
Our nation is in a flux of change that seems to be pulling away from the moral foundation this country was built on. Perhaps we need to go one place to get to another. As an eternal optimist, I want to believe that we somehow need to get to this point in order to get to somewhere better.
I could rant and rage about the slew of things that are happening in our country right now but I won’t. I only want to feel good about being an American and right now I am confused and saddened. But today, I am going to enjoy the day with family and friends and believe that tomorrow will be a better day. This too shall pass.
