Independence Day

(I took this photograph years ago as part of a project that fell through. It’s colors are not as vibrant as they are during the month of July, but I still like it)

If you’re anything like me, you’ve probably had a headache since January 20, 2017.  The POTUS Tweets and minute-to-minute commentary by the media has made me turn my TV off and close my social media accounts. And that is a GREAT thing. I’m shocked  by Americans who waste precious time writing their long rants on Facebook and fighting with strangers online. That helps NO ONE and, quite frankly, is embarrassing! What has happened to us? I’m not one who cares about appearances, but I often what other countries think of us. I do hope they realize not all of us are the same. Not all of us are disrespectful, ungrateful and greedy humans. Some of us are very thankful for our freedom (like the ability for me to used this platform to say whatever I feel like saying!) Read this article about a blogger arrested in Vietnam for expressing her opinion on the government:

Blogger Arrested

Lucky me! I can say what I want and not fear being arrested. Wow. Take a minute to digest that. And that is possible because lots of people before us were brave enough to fight for it whether on paper or in person. Thank YOU. THANK YOU!
