My wife and I were driving home last night from visiting our daughter. I drove the back roads and in the beautiful flatland of NW Ohio, plowed ions ago by the great glacier, we could see for miles and miles. It was dark-sky- friendly and we could see fireworks coloring the sky from six different communities. My wife flipped on the radio. Instead of the usual oldies on her favorite station, they were playing a patriotic medley much like would accompany fireworks in the bigger cities. It was a drive full of wonder which prompted thoughts of what a great, exceptional, and free country we live in. Happy 4th of July everyone! God bless the USA.
