Happy Fourth of July

"You have to love a nation that celebrates its independence every July 4, not with a parade of guns, tanks, and soldiers who file by the White House in a show of strength and muscle, but with family picnics, where kids throw Frisbees, the potato salad is iffy, and flies die from happiness. You may think you have overeaten, but it is patriotism.

I couldn't agree more, especially now, a time when military might is all the more evident.
I rode with my daughter on our neighborhood float in the parade today - smiling, singing, cheering and waving to folks of all color and origin, and my friend and I commented on how wonderful, simple and good the day has been.
Thanks for sharing,
