Celebrate!

I cry when I listen to this song, but I feel pride at the same time.

I’m celebrating my country today, its Independence, its beauty, and essential goodness. You all know that about half of the population says that they aren’t profoundly proud of the United States of America, and it is sad that a large proportion of Americans don’t know our history, and don’t know what we celebrate today, and why.

The USA is the Great Experiment of Freedom and, as Ben Franklin once said, responding to a question, “Well, what have we got – a Republic or a Monarchy?”,

A Republic, if you can keep it.

National Pride is struggling to make a comeback, and we are fighting globalism. Can we restore our Republic? It’s possible, but we have a lot of work to do.

So let’s celebrate today. Let’s fly our flags, watch a parade, eat a celebratory meal with our family, enjoy the fireworks. At the same time, let’s recommit ourselves to the battle ahead – a battle for the country we love. We should join with our fellow citizens, setting aside our minor differences, to uphold and restore the important things about being an American.

    Celebrating Independence Day

    America’s Independence Day—the Fourth of July—commemorates our Nation’s birthday, and the significant steps our Founding Fathers took to make the dream of this “great experiment” a reality.

    The wide spot in the road near me has a huge Fourth of July event every year. I mean: 2 gas stations, a post office and a Dollar General. Vendors come in, there is a bike parade for the kids, a gospel sing, a couple of ministers pray and say a few words of encouragement, and finally great fireworks for over a half an hour. Lasts from 2 till after 9. Neighbors visit, kids hang out, politicians circulate. It is everything local, national and American. Czar and I loved to go early and stay all day, even tho it was hot as blazes.
