“America is a tune. It must be sung together.” — Gerald Stanley Lee
We’re 6,000 miles from home this Fourth of July. Here in Romania, yesterday was just another ordinary Monday. So we cobbled together a quiet family celebration and found reminders of the Red, White, and Blue in both the familiar and the foreign. From watching our blue-clad baby take his first wobbly steps to spotting a basketball goal on a walk to the park, we felt our home country with us, if only figuratively.
How did you celebrate the Fourth of July? Have you ever spent it abroad? And American or otherwise, where do you find symbols of your homeland?
See more patriotism at Beth’s on Thursday.
