I love the forth of July. It means so many things to me.
It means the real beginning of summer. Warm days and warm nights sitting out under the stars, talking in hushed voices, breathing in wonderful smells- fresh alfalfa or a fresh cut lawn, BBQ, and night blooming flowers.
It's historic and I love that! The very spirit of the Forth of July embodies the American way of Life, Liberty and Freedom.
It means Parades and saluting our Flag as it marches by; Souza marches and flag draped antique cars, twirling girls with flags and batons.
It means families gathering in parks and on lawns to ogle the sky that they forget about 364 other days of the year.
It means birthday celebrations!
It means the Slip and Slide Party!
Just like people tell you to keep Christmas I think people should keep the 4th of July in their hearts. The Pomp and Circumstance, the feeling of National Pride, the love of fun and family.
So I hope that all of you will Keep the 4th!
Wishing you a Fantastic Celebration of our Country!
Long may you all wave!
