Happy Birthday by Jim Stovall

The United States celebrates its birthday on the 4th of July with fireworks, family, friends, food, and a midsummer holiday. It is important to remember why we celebrate.  

The United States of America is a beacon of hope and possibility for people around the world. As a government of the people, by the people, and for the people, we are imperfect because we are people. We make mistakes, we disagree, and we debate, but like any other family, we have always pulled together and united whenever confronted or threatened.
