I am American. Born and raised in US in 1960! I've witnessed many things in my life from the Vietnam War to 911 and beyond. Here's some observations.
  1. We have the right to free speech! To express our thoughts, feeling and opinions. Something many countries don't observe the rights to especially for Women!
  2. We can walk outside our door without fear only now we have to face issues of national security other countries. That's the world we live in today!
  3. We have more choices of goods, products and resources than any other country in the world. Hopefully, you don't take that for granted.
  4. We have the tremendous fortune of the Internet and Technology advancements. In California where I live, many of the most innovative world renown companies started; Apple, Facebook, Twitter/Periscope just to name a few.
  5. We are extremely rich I cultural and lifestyle diversity. (depending on which state your in)
  6. We're not perfect! No country is but, I still cannot imagine living anywhere else in the world.
  7. Happy Independence Day, America!
