I got to go home for the 4th this year and spend it with most of my family. It was really great even though we were pretty crowded. I feel like all I'm doing this summer is traveling, sleeping, and reading - it's been so nice, but I know that it's going to be over soon, and then it will be back to work and more responsibility.
I am so grateful to live in the U.S. I am frustrated with the recent Supreme Court ruling on the Affordable Healthcare Act, I don't understand why anyone still supports Pres. Obama, etc. I think it's a testament to how inspired the Founding Fathers were when they set up our government the way they did because even with a cruddy economy, corrupt leaders, and way too much government, I still live pretty well, and I still have a lot of freedom. I really need to use that freedom to actively work to uphold our Constitution and the things that our ancestors fought for.
