Today's blog will be short, completely personal and probably only meaningful to me. Yesterday was of course July 4th, the day we celebrate our nations birthday. I will have more to say about that shortly.
The first thing I will mention is that I have been sick for the past week. Not desperately ill, but, head-achy, low grade fever and just being incredibly tired. Now, for the last two days I am pretty much back to normal. It never has felt better to feel better!
Secondly I finally hit the 100 thousand point mark right here on Active Rain. It seems forever ago that a college set me an email congratulating me for hitting 10 thousand points. Active Rain has since turned in to a regular part of my daily RE life. Thank you AR for allowing me to express myself for good or bad each day.
Now the Fourth of July. I am astonished at how many people right here in America that do not recognize the greatness of our country. We are not perfect that's for sure. We have made foreign policy blunders that have made much of the world hate us. On the other hand our generosity toward nations that need help is unsurpassed, unmatched ,and usually unappreciated. Domestically we stumble over ourselves to be fair to criminals who do not deserve to be treated with fairness. Our hospitals turn away no one. Our nations law enforcement officers do an impossible job against near impossible odds and only make the news when a wrong or bad decision is made.
Now I read Chris Rocks view point on Independence Day. He apparently does not understand what this country has given him and is quick to bite the hand that feeds.
I am very proud to be an American. Glad to be feeling better, and wow, I finally hit 100 thousand points.
