Happy Fourth HN! I hope you get to see some fireworks. I'm very pleased to be an American. It makes me a sassy individual that I might not have been if I grew up in Europe and was around just other Norwegians or Scots. I like being in a melting pot and having tons of space to spread out and become very individual. We've earned those fireworks. And, America, like that spouse that grows plump with age and starts wearing their stretch pants around us, we still love Her for all the reasons that made us fall in love in the beginning. Sometimes, she just needs a day at the spa. America needs a mani/pedi, I believe, and She'll be as good as new.
