In Their Own Words: Grace Pettey, 20

Flying the flag in Davidsonville

Love for your country is something we all agree on.
    At these World Cup parties, when all of your friends and family look at the flag and hold their hands on their hearts, it’s a truly beautiful sight. Obviously it’s a fun and goofy time in dressing decked out in red, white and blue for parties, but there’s something more serious underneath that rings true for all Americans, reminding us that we live in such a beautiful country.
    With the Fourth of July coming up on top of the World Cup, you can just tell everyone is feeling it. It’s really special that we have both of them overlap this summer.
    I think Americans are really ­excited to rally together this week. I know I am.
