July 4: More than just Independence Day – The Boston Globe

Fireworks, picnics and flags are images I typically associate with this holiday, but just celebrating as a matter of routine feels empty.  So I really appreciate the author of this article for recounting the meaningful events that have occurred on July 4 over several generations.

Never Forget

Frankly, it was disheartening  to notice that the first 6 pages on Google Search for “Independence Day” brought up the latest movie instead of historical references.  As we stare down ISIS wanting to remove all our rights to exist as individuals, as women, and as a nation, let’s appreciate the work of our proud, brave military at the forefront of the battle to protect the American spirit of freedom.

Happy birthday, America! The Fourth of July means more than you may realize.
