Today is the 4th of July, Independence Day, the 240th birthday of The United States of America!
We had a wonderful day, filled with family, work, fun, and fireworks. Watching the fireworks, especially the Grand Finale’, was very moving as I thought about why we are celebrating, and what happened to give us cause to celebrate.
When we returned home, beloved hubby found this beautiful rendition by Fred Skelton about the meaning of our Pledge of Allegiance. So here it is, for your enjoyment and edification. This will be the best 5 minutes you can spend today.
You will be proud, and humbled, to be an American! 🙂
