As much as I love this country, I have to admit that we’re not perfect - far from it. But so is every other country. Sometimes I wish that we could go back and live in the times of Jane Austen or Edgar Allen Poe, it was so simple and everyone knew each other and people were so polite. But then again, I would never want to live in that era. Their medicine developments were very limited, and added to that, the fact that I’d have to ride a horse, a carriage, or walk anywhere I went. I don’t know how I’d like that. And on top of that, having to wear all of those layers of clothes everyday, even in the 90 degree heat? No, I think I’ll stick with present-day. Because in present day we as Americans come together during thick and thin, and I think holidays are a great way to really see that. Most of all, I cannot imagine being under England’s control when 9-11 happened. No, that was America’s time to prove itself, that we could, if not fully, mostly recover from such a tragedy.
So today I ask you to just remember people in your lives that have made a difference in your community and remember what our Founding Fathers fought so hard to give us - Freedom. And most of all, remember that FREEDOM IS NOT FREE!
