Happy Independence Day!

Standard

I know I’ve been harping on the U.S. lately and it’s failures to provide equality to all it’s citizens but I do want to say that I am very grateful to be a part of this country.
I am proud to be an American and I am proud to be a member of this American community.
I am grateful to have the freedom to publicly state my opinions, to be an atheist, and to voice the need for change.
So today I celebrate the USA and humbly appreciate all the privileges this country provides me.  I am appreciative for the simple things like running water, hot water, clean drinking water, safe foods, plumbing, vaccines, birth control, a democracy, rights as a woman to vote and work, the right to choose my religion, my spouse, my career, my home.
It is for these reasons that I am glad to be an American.
Happy 4th of July!
