Happy 4th of July!
As most of you know, we Americans celebrate July 4th because a bunch of independent thinkers got together and put together the Declaration of Independence. We decided that, as a country, we wanted to be the boss of ourselves. We are by no means perfect. Sheesh, do we have problems! But one of the things I like about being an American is our freedom of expression. I like it that someone can loudly criticize the government and they won’t be arrested for it… unless they’re actually making death threats or something like that.
If anyone happens to wander by the Top Down blog today, I’d love to know what you like about America… or perhaps any Americans you’ve met. If you’re American, what do you like about being an American?
Speaking of self-expression, here’s a pic of several of the Top Down Riders at the Harlequin Black and White Ball at the Waldorf Astoria in New York City. Enjoy!
