I Love the U. S. A.

Here it is, the day before the 4th of July, the day Americans celebrate our nation more than on any other holiday. It is a time for home barbecues, vacations, fireworks, the Capitol 4th. This year, it is a time for renewed caution as the threat of lone wolf terrorism is very real. It is difficult writing about patriotism without sounding mushy. My love of country is deep but based on what I hope are realities that sometimes are murky and dark. Some believe that all politicians are corrupt. Many Republicans believe that our President is leading us down a path to destruction. I will believe in and support my country and its leaders so long as they are leading us in what I consider the right direction toward a “more perfect union.” The latest confirmations regarding marriage equality and support for the Affordable Care Act undergird my belief in our country and our leaders. I pray that each of you, my Readers, have a wonderful 4th, celebrating our freedoms which are so very precious.
