Happy Birthday, America!

Dearest America,

Happy birthday! Birthdays are a time to celebrate your being, your existence and, most importantly, a time to raise a glass.

Empire State Building, New York, New York

For 24 years, I’ve had the privilege of living in the greatest country on earth, which is home to some of the most magnificent places. America, while I don’t always see eye-to-eye with everyone in this country, you are the common bond we all share. You are full of history, traditions and people that cannot be found elsewhere.

So, let’s put our labels aside and celebrate the American thread that runs deep within all of us.

In honor of your birthday, I dedicate the sparkler show in my front yard tonight to you.

Happy birthday, America!

Sincerely,

a proud citizen of the United States of America
