No matter your political leanings or your country of origin, the 4th of July is an important date. Yes, it tends to be most important – or at least most celebrated – by those living in the United States of America. But it is a day when many outside the USA can celebrate as well, for the United States is a ally, trade partner, and supporter to many other countries. So as the United States celebrates her 242nd birthday I hope that we all can take a moment to reflect on the good that came from the forming of this nation. May God bless the United States of America and may the USA be a blessings to others.
