Tonight Bryant and I took a ride on the Staten Island Ferry. It's free and takes us right by the Statue of Liberty. I don't think I'll ever get tired of looking at that. It's an amazing symbol of our country. There is nothing like it anywhere. I'm so glad I was raised in such a way that I respect and love our country. I value what it has to offer. I think that if each child was raised in such a way, politics would be a lot simpler.
The Ferry was a lot of fun though. We timed it perfectly so that we looked out over the skyline and the Statue right as the sun was setting. It was beautiful! I can't believe the sun was setting at 4:30 pm. It's so early. It's no wonder I'm tired all the time. My day is ending and it's already dark before dinner time. Strange. But it makes a great sunset. I love New York and all it has to offer. It's still weird to me to look at this place and call it home, but I'm loving my time here.
