On July 4, 1776, the United States claimed its independence from Britain with the signing of the Declaration of Independence, and Democracy was born. Each year on the 4th of July, Americans celebrate that freedom with picnics, barbecues, parades, marching bands, fireworks shows, and family gatherings. This year in 2008, America celebrates it’s 232nd Birthday.
Like many other Americans, I’ll be taking the day off from work and celebrating this Fourth of July holiday with family and friends, cranking up the BBQ and listening to Lee Greenwood sing God Bless the USA, followed by a well-deserved nap.
Happy 4th of July America!
