Most people are enjoying the day off from work, spending time with family and friends on this holiday and I think it's an absolutely perfect way to do so.
Unfortunately I have to work, I have since I started in television news. But I can't help but feel so much pride for this wonderful country and the sacrifices so many have given to defend our freedom. I'm so thankful to call myself an American. I can't help but love things that Americans treasure like football, burgers off the grill and wearing my American flag colors with pride.
There's so much significance that goes into our American flag. So many have died to protect it, others, such as people who were Naturalized today have studied hours of material to be a part of what it entails.
I urge you to take a moment today to not be thankful just for a day off from work or getting an extended weekend, but to think about why you love America.
Happy Independence Day!!! May yours be blessed and you have a safe holiday weekend :)
