Happy Birthday America

16 Comments

This is my favorite commercial ever created in the genealogy industry.  I love the concept and the execution.  In less than a minute, Ancestry.com managed to remind us of the importance of unity and freedom.

This great experiment that is America, survives and thrives by our willingness to be united in supporting the freedom and rights of every human being.  I hope our experiment continues for generations to come.  I hope this lovely commercial can serve as a reminder that there is always more that unites us than divides us.  We are stronger when we are one.

Happy Birthday America.

 

Thank you Ancestry.com for reminding us what we celebrate on this day.

    • I’m glad you enjoyed it. It really is wonderful, isn’t it? Even when we are so torn with all of the divisiveness, I’m really grateful that we are free to disagree. (Although I certainly wouldn’t complain about increased civility.)

  6. Reblogged this on Janet’s thread and commented:
    I’ll have to check my genealogy records to see if I can find one or more of my ancestors among the signers.
