Happy Birthday, America!

Happy Birthday, America!

I wonder what Washington, Henry, Paine, Hamilton, and Franklin (to name a few) would think of how we have evolved as a nation on this, our nation's 233rd birthday. We have much to be proud of:

  1. ending slavery
  2. expansion of the nation
  3. women's rights and civil rights
  4. putting the first man on the moon
  5. spreading our democratic ideals

But, we have much to be ashamed of:

  1. abortion
  2. turning our backs on God
  3. perpetuating gay rights
What are you proudest of about our nation? What are you ashamed of?


How will you be spending the 4th of July? We will be here:
