Democracy and America were born on July 4, 1776. Every year we Americans celebrate the Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave in a variety of ways, often including parades and backyard gatherings, hotdogs and watermelon.
I suggest that we all take a moment to reflect on what it means to be an American, what we each can do to continue the work of our nation, and what our responsibilities are as Americans.
Today might be a great day to read all or part of The Declaration of Independence, and put some thought into what it means to be an independent nation, during the days of the signing of the Declaration and now today, in 2010.
I suggest that we take a moment to thank those that have given themselves to serve in our Armed Forces, and to their families, many of which have sacrificed the ultimate.
Stay safe, have fun, and God Bless America!!!
