Happy 4th of July!

Today, my family will be taking it easy and enjoying some time together. However, I want to remember the reason for today’s celebration.  Today, I live in a great, free nation because of certain, historic men and many others who came after to fight for my (and your) rights to freedom.

When I was little, my mom and I would watch the movie “1776” together. Admittedly, I was not very impressed by more than a few songs and either walked away or fell asleep while she watched. Today, though, I understand the significance of this movie and the events themselves. I understand and am grateful.

Here’s a clip from the movie “1776” for you to enjoy.


And just for my Dad…

My Dad’s name is John and I would constantly sing this song to him when I was little. Of course, the lyrics had to be changed from “Sit down, John” to “Sit down, Dad”…just to be respectful. ;)

Anyway, enjoy your holiday and your freedom. Thanks to those who have fought to preserve the freedoms we’ve been given.
