If you live in the USA, you have hit the jackpot in the cosmic lottery of the Human race.
You belong to that sliver of humanity who, out of all those that have been born and died since time began, live under a political system that allows ordinary people to choose the individuals who govern them.
You have access to the richest material of things that anyone has ever had laid out before them.
And you have the opportunity to live a richer, fuller, longer life than just about anyone else on Earth.
On this, our nation's birthday, we should all reflect for a moment on just how well off and blessed we truly are.
Happy and Patriotic Fourth of July Ya'll
