How Americans are celebrating July Fourth this year
Hot weather warning: Don’t leave children, seniors, or pets in hot car

Best wishes on July Fourth

Today, I’ll be going to a barbecue with my daughter, her family, and friends.

Rafa Sparklers 2I hope that you’ll be having fun with your loved ones on this special holiday, which celebrates the birth of our nation.

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.
