Happy 4th of July, my friends!
I love this holiday. I feel so lucky to live in a country where I have the freedom to pursue whatever my heart desires. I have the freedom to express my thoughts and beliefs. I have the freedom to practice whatever religion I feel inclined to follow. I have the freedom to work hard and make my way in the world.
I have all of these freedoms because of the brave men and women who fight to protect those freedoms–from the bottom of my heart, thank you to all who fight for our country.
Enjoy today, fellow Americans! Do all the cliche Independence Day things: cook out, wear red, white, and blue, wave our flag proudly, and watch a fireworks show or two. Today is a day to celebrate our country; let’s do so with pride.
