On April 19th, 1775, the “the shot heard around the world’ was fired and the American Revolution began. On a day just like any other day, except that on that particular April 19th, a people united under a ideal that stood for something real, and the result was the United States of America. That is inspiring!
It’s a shame that the kind of humans that built our country are apparently extinct. I honor this day in memory of the USA. I miss the United States very much, even the watered down version from the 90’s
I was born in the USA and grew up there, before we let it become whatever THIS is; it’s not the USA, that’s for sure. It’s become a strange place that sort of resembles a penitentiary for misbehaved idiots who have been told to stand in the corner with a dunce cap on for doing something really, really stupid, hasn’t it?
Happy first day of the American Revolution! It gave us the dream that was the United States of America, all 15 – 20 minutes of it.
I love all of you.
