Happy Independence Day

I have noticed over the past few years that Americans do not say “Happy Independence Day,” but “Happy Fourth of July.”  On this day, we are celebrating liberty and independence from the British.  This holiday is more than bbqs (I enjoy) and fireworks (can do without).   We need to contemplate the freedoms and rights the Constitution and not relinquish them on a whim.    Remember that “freedom ain’t really free” so REGISTER TO VOTE!!!  If you need to information about the issues and voter registration, check out Declare Yourself’s website.

Let’s start a family tradition:  taking turns reading the Constitution before the BBQ meal.  I will begin with the Preamble:

“We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.”
