Today is the 4th of July and it’s a wonderful and patriotic holiday. People go and light fireworks and we all are so proud of our independence from Britain.
Or are we?
There are many in the world that just think the 4th is America’s birthday and that America is 2015 years old. No, it’s 239. It was hard for us to become a nation. Lives were lost, there was treason and secrets and through our founding fathers we forged a great country.
But many people just use this day to get drunk and shoot off fireworks all day and night. Some don’t even know that this is from the independence from Britain.
It’s all because no one cares to find out, they just like to get drunk and cause chaos.
I think our founding fathers would be embarrassed by us today.
I’m proud of my country, and though we’ve made mistakes, no country is without mistakes. We’ve got a great nation, and we’ve got to maintain it.
