Today our country celebrates her 235th birthday. many will celebrate with picnics, family and fireworks. Some will work, some will wish they were working and some will consider that this day has no more significance than yesterday or tomorrow. They all, though totally different will share one commonality and that is, they are all American. many American's today will tell you why America is great, while just as many will disagree with the speaker and in the end both parties will think they are right. That is what makes America the beautiful lady that she is, the right to think differently and the freedom to express it. That's why our country has withstood inner and foriegn attacks that have crippled other countries, because to a person we hold the fact that we can think differently and no one can take that away from us. The pimple on America's butt is those little dictators that don't say, "I disagree with the way you think," but instead say, "you are bad because you don't agree with me." However, today is a day to focus on America's shining face and realize that we all are a part of it.
