Today we celebrate the birth of this nation. This great nation, full of kind and generous people, people who forgive and try for the most part in their soul to understand their fellow-man. This is what we really celebrate today. Not a flag, not a bunch of pyrotechnics exploding in a darkened sky, we celebrate us. We are at our core a good people. Yes we are opinionated and a little over privileged  at times, but when push comes to shove we do the right thing! So today be proud of that and remember that all year long, and if we all do that, maybe those disassociated old men and women in Washington will do the same.

I have not forgotten that I said I would publish a poem inspired from the wedding I attended in Vermont. I hope to have that posted today as well. Until then enjoy your day, and Happy 4th of July!
