“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 gets iffy, and the flies die from happiness. You may think you have overeaten, but it is patriotism.” ~Erma Bombeck
I do love our imperfect nation. I hope you had a great 4th and I hope we all keep the freedoms and love for country alive in our hearts year-round. Let’s talk with our children regularly about what it means to be an American.
