“You have to love a nation that celebrates its independence every July 4, not with a parade of guns, tanks, and soldiers who file by the White House in a show of strength and muscle, but with family picnics where kids throw Frisbees, the potato salad gets iffy, and the flies die from happiness. You may think you have overeaten, but it is patriotism.”
― Erma Bombeck
Happy Independence Day!
I love this quote by Erma. We can celebrate our Independence and bask in the warmth of Freedom our service men have provided without flexing our muscles! We can picnic, parade, spit watermelon seeds and enjoy one another’s company. We do this all knowing that the muscles are there providing our freedom. For that I am grateful to all the servicemen and women that have, continue, and will fight to preserve this great Luxury!
I am deeply moved by anyone who “Stands Ready To Serve”!! – THANK YOU!
