Happy Birthday America!

July 4, 2014 — Today, the USA celebrates its 238th birthday.

We don’t look a day over 200, when we celebrated our bicentennial, if you ask me. On the other hand, it seems like we’ve been around forever.

It’s strange to think America is only 238, a mere toddler when it comes to other countries that are thousands of years old. Stranger yet, when you consider how long the land has actually existed before we claimed it. Only for a brief moment in time will it be referred to as the USA.

Just something to think about while watch fireworks today.
