This is how to sing the Star Spangled Banner!
I suspect I’m not a super patriotic person. Don’t get me wrong. I love this country, but I don’t usually go around waving flags and wrapping myself in them. Considering that I’ve only been to about 12 countries, I’ve been to enough countries to appreciate that there’s no better game on this green planet than the U.S. Other nations have their advantages over us, but it’s not to THOSE countries that the dreamers of the world which to emigrate.
We enjoy such amazing freedoms here that even with the problems we have there aren’t a lot of people leaving her to go to other countries — oh, sure, there are some, but we have more of a problem with illegal aliens than we have with population exodus. I wish some of our fellow-citizens could put aside their agendas long enough to cooperate together to make this an even better place to live.
In the meantime — take some time today to think about the good things in this nation. Think about what YOU can do to help make it better.
While you’re at it, why not set apiece and enjoy a glass of wine, or a beer, or maybe some sweet tea with a friend or family member. If you don’t have family — go out and make a friend. It’s easy.
Thanks for stopping by and I’ll talk with you tomorrow.
