I know the Red, White and Blue cheese sauce has been poured on pretty heavily over the past few days. We Americans are, of course, patriotic but we're also thankful for our friends and allies. The 4th of July holiday gives me (us) a chance to vent some pent up pride and emotion. It seems we Yanks get picked on quite a bit here on LL and it does take its toll on me (us). So I (we) just needed to let off some steam!
I'm sorry to have disparaged our French friends in one post that I did. It wasn't intended that way. S'il vous plaît pardonnez-moi.
Please don't mistake our patriotism for 'nationalism.' There's a big difference. And we're fine with being made fun of too. Heck, we even do it ourselves with "America, fuck yeah!" videos.
I immigrated to the US from Europe and grew up in and around Manhattan Beach, Southern California. The attached song and video of the same area -- written by a Brit of similar circumstance -- best sums up my early life experience that I wish to share.
And never forget that the shared freedoms we have were born of blood, sweat and sacrifice by our fellow countrymen. And today we still stand united in the cause of freedom!
Happy 4th of July to everyone...time for me to go and watch some fireworks!
