America just celebrated another free birthday last week and the party was FANTASTIC. The 4th of July is one of my favorite holidays because people get so excited to celebrate America! This past election process has divided our nation. Whenever I see people violently protesting, rioting, starting a Facebook war, etc. I immediately think, “How unpatriotic”. I mean seriously, do they really not love our country enough to disrespect others political opinions SO much they cause division in relationships?? SERIOUSLY, how disrespectful! Many people claim they do those things out of LOVE for our country. In my unpopular opinion, there is NO love in causing division which is exactly what these people do. They “fight for love” (yes I’m talking about the gay protests here) but is fighting love?? No. It’s not. It’s okay to have an opinion on the matter. In fact, we are ALL entitled to having an opinion because we are a FREE country. Live your life with your opinion, but don’t force it on everyone else just because they differ from you. How SELFISH is it for us to live in the greatest nation in the world, but still be so defiant in our opinions to intentionally lose focus on the important things, and won’t stop sharing our opinions until we get OUR way? Anyway, Independence Day is fantastic because everyone, for a day, unites and celebrates our love for America together! Key word: UNITE. We are the UNITED States of America. So let’s act like it. Every day. Not just on the 4th of July. ‘merica.
