July 4, 1776


A country's flag can represent a lot of things from a political history to the Olympics or World Cup. However I may feel about where the US appears to heading as a country (anywhere from sad to horrified), I can only honor where we came from. The people and the beliefs that created this country on 4 July 1776 are something to be proud of and I am.

I understand how you feel. The USA isn't getting any good press around the world. However, we must never forget where we came from. That alone is reason enough to celebrate. You hit the nail right on the head. Have a great day Louz!

Well said, and great photo. If we can remember where we've come from as a country, it helps remind us, despite making some serious mistakes in the course of our country's brief history, we can make things better. And we will, as long as people continue to care.
