If you will indulge me, I would like to wish a happy birthday to America. It is a grand experiment that our politicians keep telling us is messy, and like sausage it’s not something you’re supposed to see being made, and yet they tell us it’s better than whatever else is out there. For once, I think they may be right.
Thank you to all of you who have served or are now serving our country. It is only through your efforts and sacrifice that we have the luxury to freely speak our minds.
After attending the Calistoga July 4th parade I always try to find some time to read the Declaration of Independence, the Bill of Rights and for some strange reason that I don’t really understand, I love reading once again, Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address .
Thank you, and happy birthday America.
