the fourth of july: I love Independence Day...it is my most favorite day of the year. I love America and the the ideals it represents. I also love fireworks...a lot, they are pretty much my favorite thing. These are some of my favorite quotes that represent what being an American means to me... "Patriotism is easy to understand in America - it means looking out for yourself by looking out for your country." ~Calvin Coolidge. "From the prodigious hilltops of New Hampshire, let freedom ring. From the mighty mountains of New York, let freedom ring. From the heightening Alleghenies of Pennsylvania, let freedom ring ... Let freedom ring from every hill and molehill." - Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. "Four freedoms: The first is freedom of speech and expression - everywhere in the world. The second is freedom of everyone to worship God in his own way, everywhere in the world. The third is freedom from want . . . everywhere in the world. The fourth is freedom from fear . . . anywhere in the world." -Franklin D. Roosevelt "Our country is not the only thing to which we owe our allegiance. It is also owed to justice and to humanity. Patriotism consists not in waving the flag, but in striving that our country shall be righteous as well as strong." ~James Bryce................................... God Bless America

[Comments] (2) yo ho yo ho: I love pirates. the movie was great and terrible. I love pirates :)

[Comments] (3) new york city haunts my dreams.: leaving for new york on monday...taking a stop from packing. actually i need to pack but i am obsessivly reading half blood prince instead. glad i have my priorities straight. glad I can't type with capitals either. :) i need more sleep.

: finally got back from NYC....say finally not in the context that I didn't enjoy the trip, but in the fact that we sat in the airport for 10 hours on delay, then had to spend the next day in Denver before being able to catch a plane home. New york was amazing though!!! My friends and I had so very much fun, and I will give a travelog when I get a chance. thank you Sumana and Leonard for being great hosts on thursday!
