America the Beautiful

With all the insane things going on in the world today, it is nice to have a reminder of what a beautiful country we live in. On a recent trip by car to Wisconsin, I was reminded of the vast expanse that is the United States…the rolling hills, flat plains, forests…the endless fields full of crops…the local inventions like bourbon in Kentucky, cheese in Wisconsin…

All of this came about because of the diverse cultural backgrounds that form America. You can see the Swiss and Dutch influence in Wisconsin, the Scots-Irish influence in Kentucky, and the German influence in Illinois. What a wonderful convergence of all that is good in the world.

We should all remember that in these divisive times.
