To the hard right and the liberal left. To all the Tea Partiers and the N.R.A members. To all the Gay Pride paraders and all the Save the Trees believers. To the Catholics, the Protestants, the Muslims and the Pagans. To all the blacks, whites, browns, yellows and reds and all of those, which is most of us, who are some of each. To NASCAR Nation and followers of other sports.

For this day, maybe we can at least admit that the vast majority of Americans, regardless of race, creed, color or sexual orientation, love their country and want what is best for her even if we don't agree on what that is.

We can fight again tomorrow!


  1. Nice picture.
    I'm surprised that we(the US) didn't take it down a few years back due to it being a gift from France.
    Its the 5th now, lets fight.

  2. It appears that with the Dems and Republicans and the budget, we are back to fighting!
