Despite my rants to the contrary, I love my country. And she is not an easy country to love. She has warts. Big, ugly warts. And anyone who doesn’t think so is deluding themselves. But at the same time, there are many things about this country that are so strikingly beautiful. Amazingly wonderful. I am very grateful that I live here.
Some things I love about America:
• our generosity
• our pluck
• our ingenuity
• our determination
• our differences, which make it so interesting
So, happy birthday America! Happy 4th of July to all my family and friends.
And let the fireworks begin!
