Happy 233rd

Nearly every time a significant date arises in U.S. or even North American history, I think back to my trip to France.

In the U.S., we see things and are told "this was built in 1612" and we go "oooooooh." Then we go to France or wherever and see things that were built before Christ was born.

Really puts things in perspective.

Anyway, Happy 233rd, United States of America1.

Footnotes

  1. I really don't like it when people call the U.S. "America."

One Response to "Happy 233rd"

  1. Yeah, Americans have no idea what "old" means. Old is Stonehenge, or the pyramids.
