We were watching PBS the other night (alas no more cable in this house) and it was American Master’s story of Garrison Keilor. My husband and I just sat there and realized truly, whether you like him or not, he is an AMAZING storyteller. He has a way with words that just blows this beautiful picture up right in front of your eyes.
He made a comment about our country though that just really struck me…he said that as he has traveled around he has realized what an amazing country this is and that he has realized that this country was not built by “angry people”. I just thought that was so poignant and so true. We may not all agree with the way our country is being run or the direction it is going in, but it won’t be strong if we are all just moving around in anger. May we all appreciate the freedom we have and may we all love each other and this country better and deeper this coming year.
Happy 4th of July!
