America the beautiful? Try gorgeous, glorious, lovely, stunning.
We've had our share of problems in recent years, but there's no place on earth that's more beautiful, more breathtaking, than America.
I hope you'll have an opportunity to see some of it as you celebrate the Fourth today. Roam, ramble, follow your footsteps. This land is your land, after all.
Me? I'm watching the Cardinals play the Reds at Busch Stadium, followed by fireworks on the Mississippi River with the arch in sillouette. It doesn't get much more red, white and blue than that.
How are you spending the Fourth? Let us know, then check out more of the best that our country has to offer.
Happy birthday, America!
