America Means to Me...


America means to me the right and freedom to dress appropriately scandelous for every holiday. 

America means the right to indulge in all forms of the 7 deadly sins with little to no judgement from your peers.

America means to me that I can walk outside my door not worrying about societal expectations and preconceived notions of how I should dress, behave or live my life. 

America means to me that a boy who grew up with little to nothing, can work his way to the top becoming a Vice President of a major exporting company and have four beautiful daughters that are attending university. 

America means free birth control, the right to vote, and the ability to report sexual assault or hate crimes to the police. 

America means freedom of self expression
The ability to legally drink, smoke and serve my country. 

My ancestors were on the mayflower, and I think despite a lot of the bullshit we are still dealing with, this country has made amazing leaps and bounds in terms of equal rights, civil rights and an advancement in technology that would make Abraham Lincolns hat spin.

So before you go wagging your finger at this country because of this or that, just take a moment to realize just how lucky you are to live here.

And if you arent from here than well....this post has nothing to do with you, but stop by some time

  1. I'm Irish, but I've always admired how patriotic such a lot of American people are, and how much love they have for their country. Happy 4th July!

  2. America means to me the majority part of the tv series and of the movies that I saw in my life.
    America means to me a trip that I'd really like to do.
    America means to me a lot of things that I don't understand, that I can't understand because it's simply something I watch and not something I live.
    And one of things I want to do in my life is to see the fireworks of the July 4...
    I envy your love for your country, in Italy things don't work like that... and you are amazing with this outfits!!
