Are you gathering with friends and family to celebrate our nation's birthday? We are home this Fourth and Jack will serve his delicious ribs to those who gather at our table. The grandkids do not arrive until August so we will enjoy an adult evening.
I am a very knowledgeable person concerning our country's history. I know our Founding Fathers would agree with Erma Bombeck. She was a funny columnist, and although she has passed away, her thoughts on Independence Day are most poignant and true.
“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
We are a military veteran family and agree with the attitude of the Founding Fathers who believed that Independence Day was for celebrating America and enjoying food, family and fireworks........... not showing off our might and muscle. The strong and mighty do not need to show off especially at this time of border crisis.
Happy Independence Day!
Jack and Meredith
