I’ve always tried my best to stay out of politics. It is one of the discussion topics that can, for whatever reason, cause a lot of strife and immature discussions, full of logical fallacies or issues that don’t usually come up in other conversations. Especially when you may not have a strong opinion and are expected to do so.
But this week has been one hell of a week in America. From tragic, to celebratory, to outright amazing; the events that have happened this week will be in the history books.
And at the end of it all, after two landmark Supreme Court Cases, and a time of mourning for a state and community, we had a beautiful moment from our President.

Now you can say what you want about religion, political sides, or belief. But with the events that transpired this week, if you can’t watch this video and smile at how lucky we are in this country. Yes, there are times that aren’t so great. There are tragedies and disparities, but I can’t help but feel that all of America smiled yesterday.
And I’m proud to be an American this week.
