A Timely Reminder of Who We Are

It’s been a rather dis-spiriting couple of weeks in the news, hasn’t it?  There are constant reminders in the news of all the things that divide Americans from each other.  Black Lives Matter, gay marriage, immigration, church shootings, confederate flags…it’s becoming very difficult to remember that we are Americans first, and Progressives, Republicans, Libertarians, Socialists, and other dividing labels second.  Just what does it mean to live in the United States these days?

Sometimes it’s good to step back, and let someone who isn’t an American tell us who we are, from a different perspective.  The embedded video is short, but well worth a look, especially as we head towards our Independence Day celebrations.  Hey…America is a great place to be, and a wonderful country of which to be a Citizen.
