Today, although being British by birth, my naturalised American self got to celebrate this holiday of Independence in the Town that I have called home for the last 16 years. The wonderful Town of Leesburg, in Loudoun County Virginia, is a lovely place to be. To celebrate with a parade is a quintessential and integral part of life here, as I am sure it is also in many Towns and of course Cities throughout America on this special day in their history. A reminder too I think of how far we have come, and that if we really try we can work together. At least that is my hope.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY AMERICA!!
