I'm taking a break from the usual blog routine to wish my country a happy birthday. We celebrate what has come since that time and my ancestors who did their part in making this country what it is today (as far back as the pilgrims, actually). There's still a long way to go, and plenty of disagreements and political tiffs to sift through, but in the long run, we'll stay on the right track, so long as we strive to uphold the right to be free.
We can ignore the past, divided, or embrace the future, together. I say let's keep working at it, my friends.
Happy Birthday, America!
I'm David, and what do you love about your country?
