Oh Say Can You See?

This is a holiday that means a lot to me, as you know.

I am nothing if not an American.

In discussing some differences between America and Canada, a friend said America was "born in revolution," and that has been ringing in my head since.

We were. Each of us carries that revolution in our hearts, and it is not the source of the God-given freedoms we enjoy, but its memory protects them. It bubbles to the surface when we find oppression or are ourselves oppressed. It gives us confidence and conviction. It cannot be replaced with words or geography or politics. It has been relived and honored with the blood of our own patriots for generations.

It gives us our national sass. :)

So I hope you have your national sass proudly displayed one way or another today. I'm taking my national sass to our neighborhood parade where I expect to see the national sass of our area's most patriotic children and their parents and pets. I hope your 4th is safe and happy.

God Bless America.

  6. Well said, Lydia! As a former ex-pat, we have learned not to take our pride-in-country for granted! TFS
