It's time to celebrate our Nations Independence!
Join thousands and I do mean thousands of people in Washington DC to enjoy the Capitol Fourth Concert and Fireworks on the National Mall. Not only do you get to watch great fireworks but Capitol Fourth Concert is broadcast by PBS. An extended celebration is planned on the Capitol West Lawn.
Ever since I was a child listening to the 1812 Overture at the end of the fireworks display has brought chills up my spine. Even the years when I was to "cool" to go to the Capitol and elected instead for the Washington Monument grounds I would still listen on my radio. This year my son-in-law is celebrating his first 4th of July in the US and we will be enjoying all the traditions of a picnic and fireworks.
As you celebrate stop and take a moment to say THANK YOU to all of those who have served our country and help make keep America free.
