is for apple pie
because there is nothing more American than a slice of this old-fashioned classic
is for the military
because time and again I am humbled and grateful for their sacrifice – thank you to all of the proud members of the U.S. military who keep our home safe.
is for entertainment and fun
because what is a celebration without family, good food and fireworks!?
is for red
because, while the red, white and blue may be tattered and torn still, they fly proudly and symbolize patriotism
is for independence
because the Founding Fathers penned a declaration that gave that to us
is for country
because Americans can still be proud of the principles that we were founded on
is for anthem
because the national anthem still has the ability to send shivers of pride through me
“It is impossible to rightly govern a nation without God and the Bible.”
– George Washington
Wishing you all a terrific Independence Day!
Whether you’re enjoying a picnic under the coolness of a shade tree, spending the day with family perhaps swimming, watching the night sky light up in a spectacular show of glittering trails or taking in a movie, I hope you enjoy each new memory you make.
…thanks to everyone who has protected America’s freedom.
You are our heroes.
Happy Independence Day, dear readers!
