Being an American is good and bad. Maybe the bad isn’t something to talk about on a day like today. However, there are a lot of really good things to talk about. Being born in America basically makes you the equivalent of one of the top 20% of people in the world. It’s not being biased, but just looking at the stats of people around the world, the U.S. has education, has basic sanitation, has a fairly stable government and economy, which lead to some of the best environment to live in. Sure there are problems, but just being born here gives a lot of advantages. That said I hope people understand what July 4th really represents and not just having the ability to party because it’s a holiday. That said hot dogs and fireworks for all.
