As you read this, I’m on Dauphin Island off the coast of Alabama enjoying a day at the beach, and awaiting a 4th Of July fireworks display later on tonight.
After a day of picnicking, swimming, digging in the white sand, and most likely getting a tad bit sunburned; my family and I will watch a patriotic display of fireworks celebrating our country’s 233rd birthday while enjoying a cool nighttime ocean breeze and the sound of waves lapping at the beach.
I hope your Independence Day celebrations will be just as pleasant, wherever you are.
“All we have of freedom, all we use or know –
This our fathers bought for us long and long ago.”
