Happy Birthday America.
I’ve been around the world twice. I’ve seen war and I’ve seen peace. You are not perfect and neither am I.
Take care of our veterans. Give a raise to our teachers. Buy a cop a cup of coffee. The world is big and there are many beautiful places, but with your blue lakes and your sandy shorelines, I’ll always have a soft spot for you.
Your business and innovation continues to amaze. And you have the best universities in the world.
You are’t going to save the planet and you aren’t going to create world peace, but if a friend calls you for help, you will be the first in line to open your wallet and lend a hand.
They’ll burn your flag and call you names. They’ll lie and steal from you. But if they bet against you, they’ll lose.
Happy Birthday, America.
It is going to be a great year.
