Today, I’ll be going to a barbecue with my daughter, her family, and friends.
On the Fourth of July, I’m reminded of how much I love America and how much I think we can accomplish as a nation. However, I’m continually disappointed lately that partisan divisions are standing in the way of making progress.
So, today, as you have fun on your day off, try some of these patriotic ideas: read the Declaration of Independence, buy a book on American history, read about voting rights, watch a patriotic movie, sing patriotic songs on your porch, buy a July Fourth cake and sing happy birthday America, or put up lots of red-white-and-blue decorations in your house and yard.
And remember Safety First as you and your family swim, boat, bicycle, ride ATVs, drive, and picnic.
