Happy 4th of July

Hope everyone is enjoying the holiday filled with friends, family and good food! Despite the climate of division in this country and erosion of confidence in our abilities, I believe the United States is still the greatest beacon of hope in the world. And despite the ugliness of late, I have always been proud to call this country my home.

I found an amazing video of Ray Charles performing America the Beautiful at Game 2 of the 2001 World Series (Watched by more people than World Cup Soccer) and it brings me back to a time when Americans stood united as one nation. His performance at the game still brings goosebumps.

Happy Birthday, America!
