Opinion: A birthday to celebrate, a time to participate

-A A +A
By Kenny Fogle

Yesterday, we all celebrated our 241st birthday — 241 years since America announced its independence.

I hope you all had fun. I did. Between the hot dogs and fireworks, I did take just a few minutes to think about it all and why I love this country so much.

There are many things to say about being an American. We think of being proud of our country. We think of what it means to live in the best place on earth and just get a warm feeling knowing we are a special nation with diverse ideas and people, and somehow we make it all work.
