Happy July 4th - Let Freedom Ring!

By

 For the past decade, my wife and I have had a tradition of watching "The Patriot" on July 4th.  I never get tired of watching the portrayal of sacrifice and courage that won this country its freedom. 

The movie is placed in the southern colonies.  Growing up, I didn't learn much about the war beyond Virginia.  I'm not sure I ever heard about the war in the southern colonies.  The movie challenged me to do a little research to fill in the empty spaces in my knowledge of US history.

                

The more I learn, the more I appreciate this great country.  I hope you take a little time over this holiday weekend to say thank you to someone serving in the armed forces and to offer a prayer of thanks for the freedom we all enjoy.  Happy July 4th.  Let Freedom Ring!

I spent July 4th with my children and grandchildren, and spent time educating them as to why there were so many American Flags flying and what the significance of the fireworks were, as symbols of the "bombs bursting in air", as in the Star Spangled Banner song.  I was surprised that not even my teenagers were aware of what I was saying.  I love your idea and am going to incorporate it into my celebrations.
