July 4. Independence.

waving-american-flag-graphics-4-1Today, we celebrate the 4th of July.  With fireworks, parades, picnics, and festivals.  My favorite among holidays.

A holiday, where public offices are closed, we take a break from the hustle and bustle of daily life, to remember.  Well, most of the informed among us at least.  (The dolts on the video on this link are, ahh… .  really dumb.  That’s being exceedingly polite).

I have a grill, potato salad, brats, burgers and plans for our local fireworks.

They surely celebrated on this day, in 1776, yes?


Just some bells, pealing out in Philadelphia.  The actual Declaration was not signed by all its signators until later…. .   But what we celebrate this day, other than that declaration, is what happened after.  And the great sacrifice of countless others since.   Beginning right with our founders…. .
