I'm never overtly patriotic. I'm also extremely aware of the fact that we're no where near perfect.
That being said, I am proud to be an American - and still believe very firmly in the best of my country.
Oh, and I happen to love, love, LOVE this song.
Happy Independence Day, America!
P.S. For the first time in years, I get to see fireworks with my boys. Thank you, Daddy, for helping me make that possible.
