Who’d have ever thought we’d have to tell Americans to be proud of America?!
So much of what we’ve seen, read and heard recently about America has been less than stellar.
Here’s what I keep seeing and thinking, though….there aren’t any other countries in the world that people will walk to, swim to, hide in something to get to, sneak into, beg to get into and spend their lives dreaming about coming to.
America has always been a big idea. Big ideas are risky and things don’t always work smoothly along the way. An election year in America is a wonderful example of just how stupid and silly and wasteful it all can be.
But, it’s still America and to paraphrase Winston Churchill, it’s still the best idea anyone has come up with.
Happy July 4th!
