Today is a nation’s birthday. As a Brit living in the US, I often get asked about how I feel about Independence Day. I point out that, if Brits got upset about the independence day of every nation that we once controlled, we would hardly ever get out of bed. I don’t mind things that happened over 200 years ago. I do like having a day off though! I plan on enjoying it and I hope you do too – wherever you may be!
