Happy 4th of July to the U.S.

I want to wish all my family and friends in the States, a safe and wonderful 4th of July! Today is a day to appreciate being born into a free country, which offers countless possibilities and opportunities.

It’s also a time to reflect on our behaviors and beliefs as well as respecting those who have differing opinions. With all the political turmoil going on in the U.S., whether you’re a liberal or conservative, respect is key for our country to move forward and continue as a strong nation. Fighting with one another because we don’t like or refuse to acknowledge other views will only cripple us. Be thankful you have a right to express yourself, and from that thankfulness, respect and honor other expressions.

Relax and enjoy with family and friends!

Instead of posting the anthem, I thought I’d post a video by one of my favorite rockers, John  Mellencamp (who I think is underrated), because Pink Houses reflects achievements but also the challenges of middle-class families all over America. It’s what our government should consider and thrive toward fixing the American dream that has crumbled over the years. Let’s come together and focus.

Although I live in Germany, and enjoy the life, I’m proud to be an American, to have been born on soil where bombs and bloodshed were not the norm.

God Bless America!
