Arizona is 100 years old today! Most Arizonans are proud of our landscape, our national and state parks, our independent people, and our glorious climate. Many of us are not too proud of our misguided politicians who seem to think that guns on college campuses is a priority for making us safe. But I'll put that aside for now because our statehood is being celebrated today!
Happy Birthday Arizona! We love you!
