One of my favorite days as our nation celebrates our country's independence. Several years ago for our anniversary, Handsome and I went on a Mediterranean cruise. One stop was in Malta and as we exited a church, fireworks exploded overhead. A fellow passenger asked the guide what the fireworks were for and he said, "For the U.S. Our country has never forgotten what your country did for us in WW2."
Handsome and I shared a look and mine was definitely teary.
