Before we set out for a day of swimming and BBQing (and melting in this extreme heat), I wanted to take a moment to express how truly proud and grateful I am to be an American. It seems so popular to complain about the state of affairs in our country, how things are being run, and who's not getting what they deserve. But I think it's a good idea to step back and realize how lucky we really are. We have the freedom to voice our concerns, stand up for what we believe in, and make changes for the better. We're far from perfect, but I can't think of anywhere else I'd rather be... HAPPY BIRTHDAY, USA!!!
