Today is July 4th, 2011, 235 years ago 56 great men among whom were John Adams, Samuel Adams, Thomas Jefferson, and Benjamin Franklin all signed the Declaration Of Independence, thereby breaking the 13 Colonies away from from Britain, and forming the United States of America. This afternoon and evening, as you grill, cook, have a cold one, light fireworks, or go to a fireworks display, think about what it means to be an American. Also, remember the hundreds of thousands of men and women who have made the ultimate sacrifice to keep us free.
God bless you and the USA.
