Dear America

Molly B and Me

Dear America,

Today we salute you with red, white and Michigan blueberry pride.

We tip our hats to the American ingenuity that gave us light bulbs, the coffee pot, sewing machines, roller skates, dishwashers, the zipper, telephones, televisions, Google, Facebook and that Mecca for weary travelers, Kwik Trip.

We have stood in awe on the edge of your oceans, the middle of your corn fields and the top of your mountains. We have raced the rapids on the Yellowstone River, ridden the waves on the Alabama coast and jogged through the monuments in Washington, D.C.. We soaked in the frenetic energy of the New York skyline and the stately beauty of the Smokey Mountains.

We applaud your people with their cheerful Midwestern kindness, East Coast sophistication, Southern charm and West Coast flair.

And oh! Your food! Hot apple pie with melting vanilla ice cream, juicy cheeseburgers hot off the grill…
