Dear Marketing Geniuses: Will you join me for a one-day break from the learning and discussion of marketing? I want to invite and urge you to post a tribute to the USA or to share what you appreciate about our great nation. Also feel free to exercise your 1st Amendment right to disagree, if you wish.
July 4th, 2008 - Another Independence Day is upon us, and America remains without question the finest nation that's ever been built in the history of mankind. I am proud to be an American. While that may sound corny to some, and it may not be popular to say anymore, know that it's a heartfelt statement.
On the eve of our nation's birthday, I am thankful to live in a nation where I can think and speak freely. Where I can publish a blog, for instance. I am thankful to live in a nation where I can own property--a house, a business, a vehicle. I'm proud to live in a nation in which I can worship freely and live every day without fear or persecution. The US of A ... it's not perfect, but still the best nation in this world.
