Happy Birthday.

Your children may argue.  They may denounce and curse one other.  They may lead you astray in the name of progress.  They may even forsake you in the name of their beliefs.

Others may be angered by you.  They may not understand your actions.  They may disrust and hate you.  Some may even wish for your destruction.

But despite it all, despite all those convinced of your impending doom, despite all those who wish for your doom, and despite all those who hate you and your children, I am certain of one thing.

I am proud to call myself American.

Happy Birthday, USA.
