Happy Birthday to the greatest nation on earth:  The United State of America.

Today we honor this amazing nation.  We honor all of our veterans, their families, our police and fire heroes and all of our amazing servants.  America is not perfect, but we are the closest to perfect that there is on earth.

From all of us to all of you, Happy Birthday America.  God Bless America!
