Every year we celebrate the birth of what is arguably the greatest country the world has ever known.  How fortunate we are to live in that country.  We are having difficult times right now in this country, but for me that does not negate the many achievements of this country and all that remains to be done that is clearly within our reach. Happy Birthday, America.  Try to remember that as citizens of this country, we are among the wealthiest, most educated and most fortunate people in the world.
