Happy Birthday America!

We're approaching the two hundred thirty-seventh birthday of the USA. Happy Birthday America! There is no other country in the world where anyone can come, work hard, and achieve their dreams. Anything is possible, no matter your background. My grandfather was an Italian immigrant, who came here without money, but with skills as a shoemaker. He worked tirelessly to provide for his family, and build his business. He lived the American dream, as so many millions of others have. As you celebrate with your family and friends, I hope you'll take time to reflect on the greatness of your nation. May God shower His grace on the land of the free and the home of the brave.


  1. Wow. 137 years! This is a great country. You've written some beautiful words expressing American pride. Enjoy the holiday!

  2. You, too, Sherry! I hope you have a wonderful holiday and that you'll be celebrating lots of other things soon.
