Sacred Day

I love being an American.

Yes, my country messes up on a regular basis. Yes, there are things I would change, if given a magic wand.

But our experiment in democracy is going well, all things considered. I am a proud citizen, and I am very grateful for the courage of our ancestors 229 years ago. Listen to the words that changed the world.

Being American means having a responsibility to learn how our country started and what you can do to make it better.

Enjoy the fireworks!

“…we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor.”
from the Declaration of Independence
