If ever there were a day to exhibit patriotism in the USA, today would be that day. It is commonly held that The Declaration of Independence was signed on July 4, 1776, releasing the thirteen colonies from the rule and thumb of Great Britain. It is through no small miracle, and huge amounts of work, dedication, and devotion from our citizenry (previous and past) that our country has flourished and prospered into this beautiful place we call home. And so, with no small amount of aplomb we do, and should, celebrate the day in grandiose fashion. Even when the temperatures are in the 90’s or higher (clink your ice-cube-filled glasses with me here, folks) the mood is bright, the kids are happy, and the festivities are in full swing: Just as it should be.
Here’s to wishing you a Happy 4th!!
