independence

means alot to me. it does. walking down a street, or smoking a cigarette or doing the dumb shit i do, its all possible for me because i was born here, in this free nation, in this land of opportunity.
america keeps me safe.
well its brave men and women keep me safe.
america has good intentions.
its pretty good here, you know?
so all my veteran friends, all my enlisted ones too, and every person who flies a flag today or has a kick ass barbeque, thank you. for everything. i know i bitch alot about america, but you have to know it because i love her and i just want her to be ok, and stable and wonderful for everyone.

hooray 4th of july. hope you have all your fingers by the end of tonight.

good point, it reminds me of something i read i think by orson wells, that America sleeps safe because there are me ready to go to battle or kill for her. Something like that, too bad the big majority of Americans are oblivious to the fact.

"Those who ‘abjure’ violence can only do so because others are committing violence on their behalf." -George Orwell, "Notes on Nationalism", 1945.

But Independence Day isn't about violence, though it comes with the whole 'being a nation' thing. It's about remembering what drove this nation to become America as we know it. Something was wrong, and a group of driven individuals made it right.
