Before we get lost in the fireworks and hotdogs, I would like to remember those brave men who gathered to give us a great nation. When Thomas Jefferson and Benjamin Franklin and the like got together they only had the dream of a new nation, through their working together and remaining true to coming to an agreement, we have the best place on earth to live. It's a weekend to put aside who did what to who, a weekend to celebrate what we have and how we can still be an example to the world of how to share our riches and ideas that first made this a great place. The hard work we each perform every day adds to the wealth of all and in that respect we owe some of it back to others. So let that pride of a great nation come out this weekend, serve at a hotdog stand, stand at a parade with your hand over your heart respecting those who went before us to give us what we have, as the flag goes by think of the decades of brave men and women who have kept us safe, I know I will. Happy Independence Day to all who live in freedom in this great country.
