It is America’s birthday today. 239 years old, quite young for a so called “developed” country.
That says a lot for the American who has made impressive strides in that short time span. Let’s just say it is a common knowledge. No need to list the scorecards.
Now I am not going to lie. America is not perfect. It has got issues. Some serious and requiring attentions. But who doesn’t.
This morning I ran 7 miles. And it started to rain in the later miles. The DC Road Runners were also out in number at the same location for a 4 mile race. While their race was ultimately canceled due to the weather, many runners were in patriotic attires fitting for the spirit of the day.
Happy Birthday America! It is, by far, my choice of place to live.
Any special where you are?
