I don’t consider myself to be especially brave, courageous or dedicated. And in general, I’m pretty disappointed with my government. But there are certain times when I feel really, deeply proud to live in the U.S.

Saving Private Ryan was just on one of the movie channels, and I have to say, when I watch the end of that movie, that’s one of those times. That movie never ceases to provide an opportunity to turn on the waterworks.

I know that this is just a bullshit post, and I do have the intention on writing some meaningful stuff in the near future, but lately I just haven’t felt very motivated.
