Howdy Folks,

*****************************************

I'd like to wish you a happy Fourth of July.

Here's 70 seconds celebrating some fun things about the USA.

You've probably seen all these images and scenes before. And maybe some made you smile.

But there's something serious here too. And timely.

Halfway through, there's audio from a former US President's inaugural address speech. He says, "There is nothing wrong with America that cannot be cured by what is right with America."

I may be naive. I may be hopelessly optimistic. But I believe that.

With my whole freakin' heart.

I'm not going to deny for a second that my heart hasn't sometimes been tired or anxious or angry or sad these past few months. I'm going to guess your heart has too.

But I still believe in America.

And I believe in America because I believe in us.

And not to put too fine a point on it, but I believe in us because I believe in you.

We are what makes America. Regular people like you and me putting a greater good ahead of themselves and doing rad stuff. People showing kindness and generosity to each other. People doing their best to display empathy to one another and trying to understand when they see something differently. People assuming the best of each other.

I hope on this day today, you can be hopeful. Be encouraged.

That same President quoted above closed the same speech with this:

"And so, my fellow Americans, at the edge of the 21st century, let us begin with energy and hope, with faith and discipline, and let us work until our work is done. The scripture says, "And let us not be weary in well-doing, for in due season, we shall reap, if we faint not."

"From this joyful mountaintop of celebration, we hear a call to service in the valley. We have heard the trumpets. We have changed the guard. And now, each in our way, and with God's help, we must answer the call.

"Thank you, and God bless you all."

Our country isn't perfect.

And like he said, we've got work to do.

I think we're up to it.

Let's go.

Happy 4th of July from your Friends at Footballguys.
