America is a crazy place, It’s a great country to live in, with a lot of history, and sacrifices.
But, Only in America, can these things happen.

Only in America are there handicap parking in front of a skating rink.
Only in America do drug stores make the sick walk all the way in the back to get their prescriptions … while healthy people can buy suntan lotion up front.
Only in America do people order double cheeseburger, large fries, and a diet coke.
Only in America do we leave cars worth thousands of dollars in the driveway, and fill the garages up with junk.
Only in America do we use answering machines to screen calls, and have call waiting, so we won’t miss a call from someone we didn’t want to talk to in the first place.

In a few days, our nation will celebrate Independence Day. It is a day set aside to celebrate our freedom as Americans and to reflect upon what it means and what it cost for us to be free men and women.
