Happy Fourth

The question: What does Fourth of July symbolize in US? The 4th of July represents the birth of a nation, the United States of America, that got their independence from the British empire and is therefore a day to celebrate the creation of this country (Alice T Breeze. What does the 4th of July really represent? January 16, 2017).

I know that this past year has been difficult for everyone. The pandemic has taken many jobs, businesses have closed, and many have lost their lives to this pandemic. But for those that are here now, we can say that we have made it, yes with some bumps and bruises, but we are here. It is time to get back up, push forward, and live, not only for those that we have lost but for yourself and those that are still here. Those around you will need you for what is ahead, and those that are gone would want you to move ahead. This Fourth of July needs to mean something more than just the United States of America, this day needs to be about those that we have lost to this pandemic, those still struggling through this pandemic, and even those that say they are ok but are fighting their own battles within.

Our family was invited to a BBQ with our next-door neighbors today; they asked us to bring toppings for burgers. It is nice to get out and mingle a little, of course, we are still doing it safely. These BBQs are interesting, to say the least, I will have to tell you about the BBQ. With that, I wanted to wish everyone a fantastic Fourth of July, have fun, eat, laugh, and enjoy.

Thanks for reading and I leave you with this thought, “If you are at a gathering and see someone in the corner by themselves, walk over, smile, and spark up a conversion, you don’t know what they are going through and you might just make their day – and yours”.

Strange but true, I was born in San Salvador, as an abroad US citizen. It sounds strange, but you see, my mother was 5 months pregnant and happen to be visiting San Salvador. She slipped and fell in a pool and well, I was born. I am a twin, but unfortunately, he did not make and I did. My mother’s side of the family happens to be well of, and I had the opportunity to live a nice life early in my childhood. You know, private school, servant, nice home, and vacations. Things change when my mother decided to follow my father to the United States and well, that is where my story begins. I started a blog a while back, but life sort of hit and I left it behind, but now as I am a bit older, I decided I needed an avenue to share my experiences with others, while at the same time allowing me to open up and talk like I am on someone’s couch, I guess you could say. This blog will be more like an open book, created by experiences that I have had throughout my life. Experiences that many could relate to and what I did or how I handled it, you know after the fact. You never know there just might be a piece of information, idea, an option that someone could use and it would help them through the experience. Just remember these are my experiences, things I have been through, work through, and lived through – it does not mean I am right, but it does not mean I am wrong – it is simply an experience.
