It's a special day in the land of the free and the home of the brave. Today marks the US of A's 237th b-day and all patriotic citizens are invited to the party. I'll forever be enchanted by Europe, but my home and heart will always remain stateside.
We're a land that loves our Lady Liberty and our dear Uncle Sam; we're obsessed with the Kardashians and the Kennedy's; we're too lazy to get our own pizza; we have bragging rights to legendary sitcoms like Seinfeld and Friends (the latter of which, in my humble opinion, is slightly more legendary); we seem to be the only country that's caught onto iced beverages; we honor our presidents (so much so our fab four are carved into the side of a rock in South Dakota); Ryan Gosling lives here; our cinematic specialities include everything from super hero sequels to old Westerns; we went to the moon in 1969 (and the Disney sitcom "Even Stevens" never let my generation forget it); we have purple mountain majesties and amber waves of grain; we gave birth to hip-hop music, deodorant, ATMs and Lunchables--all things the world would be a sadder place without; we boss it up at the Olympics e'ry time; we like to combine two really good things to make a great thing: take labradoodles, Bennifer (Jennifer Garner + Ben Affleck), and Snuggies for example; and when we're not eating one of our delicacies like string cheese, potato chips, pecan pie or Toaster Strudel, we're more than likely watching someone eat it on the Food Network (grubbin', like stuntin', is a habit).
We bleed red, white & blue and
will always be loyal to our stars & stripes.
We're 'merica and we're pretty proud of it. Happy Independence Day!
