This weekend, we celebrate the birth of the United States of America. With nearly 4 million square miles of land and more than 3 billions multi-cultural citizens, it is arguably the greatest nation in the world.

As citizens, we often have complaints about our land, our laws, and our leadership-and rightfully so. We are granted rights to publicly criticize our government--a right that many other countries don't extend to their citizens. Many of us don't understand that the mere fact that we are able to speak out, without fear of our lives, is a testament to our Constitution.

I have to say that I'm the first to admit that while everything here isn't wonderful and grand, I wouldn't trade my American citizenship for anything else in the world. Besides, when is the last time you saw a group of Americans floating away on a raft, in search of a better life?? Happy Birthday, America!

Your comments--priceless!!

    I agree, for all its faults and foibles, there is no place on earth i would rather live.

    And this past year with the election of president obama has redoubled my faith that this country can grow and change in a continually more positive direction.


  3. Amen to that! Great post. Living here in So Fla, we get to see a lot more of those rafts than most of our American brothers and sisters. I think it brings the idea of how precious our freedom is that much closer.
