Celebrating America

Happy Fourth of July

"Give me your tired, your poor,

Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,

The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.

Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,

I lift my lamp beside the golden door!”

-inscription on the Statue of Liberty

Our Express Yourself!™ team are proud to be Americans as hosts Asya Gonzalez and Zahra Hasanian celebrate freedom of speech and living in the USA. They interview best selling author, Mary Roach with her newest book, Grunt, discussing the military life not portrayed in movies. On a daily basis, soldiers fight more esoteric battles against less considered adversaries—exhaustion, shock, panic, disease, extreme heat, cataclysmic noise, gastrointestinal distress, and assorted waterfowl. In Health Rap, Reporter Alex Pawlakos celebrates America by taking a look at medical research accomplishments.When it comes to medical innovation, the United States is the world leader. Happy 240th birthday America. We are grateful to live in the land of the free and the home of the brave!
