Happy independence day, y’all! I still love the British, but these gifs must go up anyway. Despite everything poor we have done in the past, I choose to look at all the good we’ve done and still adore my country. So to celebrate, here’s the most American gifs the world may ever see.

In Memorial

For those of you who don’t know, today is Memorial Day in the USA. The basic idea is to have a day that honors the military members who died in service. It’s a brutal reminder that as much as we glamorize war in movies and books, those who choose to go into service are mothers, fathers, sons, and daughters. Even if you didn’t know them, somebody did. Someone is out there mourning at a grave today. I know a few.

So in the midst of all the barbecues and gatherings, remember those who made it possible for you to still be here, doing the awesome stuff we do every day. All the military branches are equal today.
