I had a moment tonight, when watching the fireworks with my family and friends, right in the middle, when I was profoundly grateful and humbled to be living in a time and place in which hearing cannons and seeing bombs bursting overhead means a joyous celebration and not terror. I was very aware that not all mothers are so lucky, that their children have been, or are right now, in danger from bombs and guns and war.

I am grateful for those who sacrifice their safety and their family's sense of joy so that my family can be safe and joyous, post past and present. I am grateful to the wives and husbands of those who go away to danger, because my husband or I do not have to. I am grateful for the sheer dumb luck that I was born an American in this time period, and don't have war in my daily life.

I'm praying for peace on Earth tonight, for all of us.
