Momentary apologies to the rest of the world.....but it was really fun being an American tonight.
We drank, we danced, we sang patriotic songs, we waved flags and shot off fireworks. We cheered and broke into applause at anyone wearing a military uniform. It felt good to feel good about the country, regardless of what the press or other people have to say about us. This was just us, celebrating being us....uniquely American...red, white, blue, brown, black and yellow....all singing along to Yankee Doodle Dandy and God Bless America. It was great fun, truly.
I'm sure tomorrow will bring back our differences, but tonight we were all united. And it felt great.
Three cheers for the red, white and blue.
