I am Proud to be an American.

Happy Independence Day Everyone!

(More commonly referred to as the 4th of July)

I am an American and I declare that proudly.

Does my country have its own set of issues? Well, yes obviously, but every country does.

Is my country perfect? Goodness, no! But that does not negate my love for it.

I am proud to be an American. I support my country and I pray for it’s future often. I think that lately in our efforts to “improve” our country, we have forgotten how wonderful she is. Today, I encourage all Americans to put aside your differences, your anger, and your hurt and celebrate the country that we have and think positively about her future.
