In honor of July 4th.
What's Good In America I found this article paticularly insightful because it's written by a foreigner who has now made his home in America. I also love that he concedes that there are some things wrong with America. He's not looking through rose colored glasses. I'm tired of feeling "evil" because I'm an American and tired of feeling like I have to be grouped with the ideals and beliefs of a political system gone crazy. I want to remember that being American defines where I live not how I live. I'm thankful to live in a country that affords me the freedom to be an individual with my own ideals and beliefs and still be considered part of the whole.
