The 4th of July reminds us that we are Americans first before any political party or differences on social or economic issues. Our country’s men and women fought for freedom from a monarchy and although we have made mistakes as a nation since our beginnings we are still the envy of the rest of the world. As one of the youngest countries we have grown to being one of the most powerful and influential in history. We should never forget that if not for those that fought for our freedom we would not have the opportunities we have now. Although there are disagreements throughout the country and even some that may express themselves in ways that may be considered over the top or even offensive it is because of our freedoms that they may do so. So to all politicians, the media and even our neighbors let’s not forget where we came from and remember that a nation whose citizens have the same goal can accomplish anything even if they have different ideas on how to get there. GOD BLESS AMERICA!
