Happy birthday, United States of America! You are a wonderful place to live, and despite what some people believe, the people who live here are generally kind, generous, and friendly. We love our families, our friends, and many times, perfect strangers who happen to work in Hollywood. We laugh and cry and pray, and don’t think twice about doing any of them. We get to pick who we want to manage the government for us. I wouldn’t trade any of these things for, say, a lifetime supply of Ben and Jerry’s or a 32-inch Sony television, no matter what impression I might give off.
So happy birthday. And many more.
