Happy Birthday, America!
Sometimes it’s easy to forget this holiday is about more than fireworks, BBQ’s and parties. Two years ago I was in Boston just before the July 4th holiday and walked the Freedom Trail… seeing history in real life is a terrific adventure!
Over the years a number of folks have died so that other folks can bash the President or the opposition and not worry about going to jail. As you celebrate the 4th.. take a minute or two to remember what an amazing country we live in, even with all its faults!
