Still The Best
Will yours be knee high by the fourth of July? This of course refers to an old expression by US farmers for corn growth. With the severe flooding in many parts of the country this year knee high by the 4th would be a blessing for some farmers. And I’ll just have to forget having fresh from the garden tomatoes for the July 4th picnic this year, it was just too cool for too long early in the growing season. That won’t stop us from enjoying the 4th though. Even with America’s ups and downs over this past year there’s still a lot to celebrate this 4th of July. First and foremost, we have the freedom to be able to “agree to disagree”; meaning, you can speak out if you disagree with how local, state, or federal officials do things without fear of imprisonment or even death. Also, if you have enough personal fortitude, desire, and ambition you can be whatever you want to be, no matter your race, sex, religion, or financial status. Essentially, we all have the freedom of saying what we want, wearing what we want, and doing what we want. So here’s to everyone having a fun and safe 4th of July, and remember we still live in the best country in the world!
