WHY IS THIS DAY SO IMPORTANT TO ME; A KID IN HIGH SCHOOL?
Hey, I’m just a kid still in high school and trying to just make it to the next chapter of my life but one thing that I know and truly believe in is that the Fourth of July is not just a day meant for shooting off fireworks. The Fourth of July is meant for celebrating the day that our nation became independent and the Declaration of Independence was signed.
With all of the crap and hard times this amazing and great country is often faced with, it can leave you wondering ”why should I be proud to be an American?” While some believe that the USA is not a perfect country, there is a lot that is right about this country and it is my country and I love it!
I love that I have the chance and opportunity to be part of something. Yeah, my friends, my competition and everybody that rides with me all can hop on their dirt bike and be free to simply ride. The feeling that I have when I’m riding my bike is unlike nothing that can compare.
So with that said I want to thank my family and friends and those sponsors that believe in me and give me the support that I need to keep it going. And yes, It’s great to be an American and I’m proud of it! God Bless America!
