4th of July

Happy 4th to everyone! Got back from watching our lovely fireworks display with sis, Laura, and just enjoying some nice weather compared to other fellow country men and women. Was a lovely 70 compared to the triple digits elsewhere. The fireworks were lovely with smiley faces, hearts, and just bright colors. Got to also stop and reflect on how lucky I am to live in a society as free and tolerant as ours. We may not be perfect and back slide a lot into prejudice and intolerance. However, overall, our country is a haven for freedom and democracy. I'm glad I live here. Happy 4th, everyone!
