Happy 4th everybody!

Yet another 4th has happened upon us!  Happy Birthday USA!

Now that the festivites are underway, I have a question.  What does the 4th mean to you?  Is it just a holiday to light off fireworks and barbeque?  Shouldn’t it be something more?  Shouldn’t it be what it was meant to be?  A celebration of our Declaration of Independence from Norway!  (just kidding, it was Britain)  The point is that nearly 25% of our children don’t know why we celebrate on the 4th of July.

Don’t just hand your kids a sparkler this year.  Take the opportunity to teach them something.  The public school teachers can’t have all the fun!  Share the pride you have in our country!
