Sweet land of liberty...

After a week of rainy days, the sun is out just in time for the Independence Day celebrations!!
It is a beautiful afternoon and I am reflecting on the great privilege it is to live in the United States. No country is without flaws, weaknesses, room for improvement, but the American spirit is a fine and noble thing.

It is still a land of great opportunity.

These fine words engraved on the pedestal of The Statue of Liberty
remind us of who we are...

"Give me your tired, your poor,

Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,

The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.

Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me.

I lift my lamp beside the golden door!"

~Emma Lazarus

Now that is something to believe in.
