Party in the USA

Some reasons why I love America (just in case you wanted to know)

*We have a special day just for blowing things up

*The Star Spangled Banner - I love it at sports events, high school rallies, or church, no matter where, I always get a lump in my throat.

*People wearing Red, White and Blue



*Inspired documents like the Constitution

*The Golden Gate Bridge

*Mt. Rushmore


*Country Stores and Diners

*Dedicated Soldiers

*Old Glory

*Fuzzy Dice

*Country Music

*Washington D.C - maybe not the people there, but what it stands for and for the history


*Unity (we really do have it, think 9/11)

*Abraham Lincoln

*Pride (in a good way)

*Founding Fathers

*The Pledge of Allegiance
Have a memorable Independence Day! Enjoy! And don't singe your eye-brows on the pyrotechnics.
