Happy Birthday, America
233 years ago, our founding fathers sat in Independence Hall in Philidalphia, Pennsylvania. It was at that time that our founding fathers final gave up any attempt to reach a compromise with Great Britian and declared that the thirteen colonies were officialy independent from British rule.
Since then, our country has faced many hardships. We have been through wars, depressions, natural disasters, and more recently, terrorist attacks. And yet, our country still thrives and we continue to have these God given rights that our founding fathers said we had.
Contrary to popular belief, The United States of America has been and always will be the leader of the free world. No matter what any politician may say, the USA will always be spreading the joys of democracy and freedom to those who don't have it.
And I am proud to say that I'm an American. I hope you are, too. So Happy Birthday America, and here's to many more centuries of being the land of the free and the home of the brave.
