Here are 10 things to be very, very happy for this July 4th:
1) Americans serving our country at home and abroad. 1,452,939 Armed Service members,80,000 AmeriCorp members, and 9,095 Peace Corp volunteers and trainees are serving our country, at home and abroad. I do love our troops!!
2) Americans speak out against sexism. After two female legislators were banned from the Michigan House floor last week after saying “vagina” during a debate about an anti-abortion measure, an estimated 5,000 people gathered at the state capitol for a reading of “The Vagina Monologues.”
