Happy 4th of July (even to the Redcoats among us)

Love seeing this every 4th.

Love seeing this every 4th.

Happy 4th of July ya’ll!

I assume that if anyone sees this, they are stuck inside because of rain, just came off a double shift and don’t know what day it is or perhaps are aliens visiting us for the first time.

Today is a day for Americans to celebrate and not just because we won our independence. It’s a day to celebrate our diversity, our strength of character and our dedication to be better people and a better country.

Some will argue that the US isn’t as good as it used to be. In some ways, perhaps that’s true.

But—and this is important because it is true for our own lives as parents —we keep trying.

Being a dad isn’t easy. Being home all the time has it’s challenges. I struggle.

I work hard to get better though.

In the last year we’ve seen strides forward in marriage equality, started to get back on our feet economically and managed to avoid any major wars breaking out.

The work isn’t done. America—just like each of us—has issues.

Together though, we can keep making this country and world a better place for everyone.

Happy 4th of July.
