Global Citizen

Are you excited for the 4th of July? Well, I can’t wait enough to drive back to D.C. to be with my husband and family. Like last year, we plan to watch the parade and the fireworks this year too! Back in India, I grew up in Kanpur where our Independence Day celebrations were limited to the usual programs in school ending with the flag hosting ceremony. So growing up, I never got to watch a live parade, which is why today when I think of it, I get excited. Even though I am not in my own country or this Independence celebration may not be ‘my own’, but then I think how does it really matter? Just because I was not born here, doesn’t mean I don’t think of this country my own! I live here, work here, eat here, earn here, pay taxes – its definitely my own! Plus one only feels the way he wants to! And frankly I consider myself as a ‘global citizen’ and would love to be a part of the Independence day celebrations.

With that thought, I am wishing my fellow Americans a very Happy Independence Day!

P.S. This is what I wore to see the parade last year.. nothing fancy, just easy!
