Just want to wish all the Americans here a happy Independence day. I know that this year a lot of people aren't going to celebrate for the obvious reason, but I hope that you all have a great day none the less. :)

On the news, I keep hearing how this year, the Fourth (I need to remember that's today!!) will have much more of a meaning to the US than in any other year.

Truthfully, I don't think it will. To me it will, obviously because of 9/11, but also because my sister's fiancee is in the military (we think he's over in the Middle East or Afghanistan right now). So I can appreciate, on a personal level, how much is/was at stake in wars, and the cost that freedom has come at.

I got a little off track there. When I say that to much of the country it won't have more of a meaning, I meant to say this. The day after the attack on NY and Washington, I saw so many people who really could have cared less. They're reason, it doesn't personally affect me, so why should I worry about it? They didn't care then, so they won't care now. I honestly think today will have more of a meaning for only a small portion of the country. As sad as that is........

Yeah, we learn to appreciate a thing when we lose it or when its threatened. Thank America for being one of the most persistent democracy and freedom keepers.

Happy Independence Day! :)

Just a random question, who do you think would have been the better President??

Al Gore, Bush, or Ralph Nader (was it the last election he ran in?) lol

Don't turn this into a political fight, they'll close the thread. I said what I thank Amerika for. It's their President, so I have to respect their choise. BTW, I like Bush and his policy.

Hey! Bush is cool! I"m a republican baby! But hey lets not get into political discussions right now! The point is Americans rock! Osama is probably dead and Bush hasn't led the world to destruction so back off! We're all apart of the same nation (unless you want to start the second civil war) But forget all that! We rock! God bless America!! Can I hear an "Amen?""

Why thank you, Emma! And not to worry, we ARE celebrating, time to go down into town for the fireworks now.

Where I live at, it's really creepy right now. My city is in the middle of 4 other rather large cities, each with it's own fireworks tonight. It seriously sounds and looks like a warzone here. A lot of the fireworks have incredibly loud booms. There was one awhile ago that shook the house a little. Smaller ones sound like rapid gun fire, and of course the flashes look like gunfire. It's kind of scary right now! :eek:

Sorry to say this, but **********. Permit us a little patriotism. Unbelievable!

You're right. Accept my apologies, but sometimes certain things just get to you.
