Fourth of July 2015


239 years ago, an experiment called the United States declared their independence from England on July 4th. It was a bold move and a bold experiment that keeps on going to this day. Men like our first president George Washington took the brave step and were considered traitors to the King but instead they are consider heroes for their actions:

Over the last 239 we have had our mis-steps and failures but great men and women have help keep us together. We have not have always got along but somehow we have kept together this union:

People forget how big and diverse this county is. Size wise, we are as big as Europe and we are the one of the most diverse people in the world. We may not always get along and we have our problems as a country but somehow we are still united as one. So America, Happy Birthday






To anybody who reads this, please have a good and safe 4th of July:
