Today is an important day for those of us in the States! If I am counting correctly, it is the 236th Birthday of the United States of America. On this occasion let me share some of what I believe about MY country.
I believe in the promise of America although we do not always achieve the goals for which we strive
I believe that although my country is not perfect (yes we do make mistakes!) our goals are still worth fighting for
I believe in freedom….not the freedom of the Republicans (we are all free to believe anything we want as long as it matches what they believe)……….but true freedom for each of us to live our lives the way that we see fit
I believe in compassionate Capitalism.
- Compassionate Capitalism IS the belief that it is unforgivable for us (the richest and most powerful country in the world) to have people in our county that are hungry or do not have access to health care
- Compassionate Capitalism is NOT: I’ve got mine…..too bad if you have not managed to get yours yet
Happy Birthday America! May we as a country continue to strive to achieve the goals that our founding fathers established over 200 years ago.
I can’t think of any better way to celebrate than listening to the best version of the Star Spangled Banner every recorded.
