Happy 4th of July!
Birthday of a nation, should be a pleasant day and should bring happiness and joy to that nation; in this case the American nation. I only wish this could be extended to all other nations, despite the fact that I do believe all nations will eventually become one.
With that note, Happy July the 4th, the United States' day of Independence from Britain. Happy 4th of July to those Americans who value the independence of their country while respecting the independence of othere nations.
