Oddly enough, St. Patrick’s Day is a reminder of why America is pretty cool.
In America on St. Patrick’s Day, everyone can be Irish.
We can celebrate the culture of another country in a (mostly) positive way without fear.
We can all be Irish for the day and smile and laugh as one.
Despite our politics and differences we can get along.
I’m not naïve enough to think that all of us get into this spirit on St. Patrick’s Day (or any other holiday for that matter).
But I am almost always surprised by how much of a difference it makes.
Embrace your inner Irishman (or lass) today.
Make it a great day.
