Happy 4th of July!!!
First, let me say that I hope that everyone has a wonderful and safe day. If you are drinking today, please be responsible! I think this is part of the reason we wanted to host an 4th of July cook-out, so that we can drink at home and not worry about driving or having to be responsible. We deserve a day to let-go and have some fun!
Wipe away the political crap! I do not agree with a lot of what the "Government" portrays within their deceitful wars. The primary fact, and what we should remember (instead of how disgusted we are with our current 'leaders') consider July 4th, 1776. Commemorating the adoption of the Deceleration of Independence. This is an excerpt from Wikipedia, that touched me and thought it would be appropriate to share here:
There is a desperate need for the change that was promised a few years ago, that we still have not received. Let me revise that, I am referring to positive change. Something that American's can be proud of, that can unify the nation, not tear us apart. This country was founded with independent individuals trying to escape tyranny. What is upsetting, Government officials and associates, are suppose to serve and protect the people of the United States of America. When did this stop and we started sending our people to serve and protect other nations (that don't even want US there!?) It just doesn't make sense to me, but then again - I'm just a mere mortal - "puny human" (in my best Hulk voice).
