We had planned on going somewhere to have a cookout or a picnic today, but it's going to be 95+. Too hot to stay in town and be outside. We could go to the mountains, but maybe we'll do that tomorrow. So today we are going to cook hamburgers and sausages on the grill. I already have jello salad (homemade), pasta salad (homemade), potato salad (from store), and beans (from store). This way we can stay in the air conditioning, which is a really good thing.
I have wondered a little today how England feels toward us on the July 4th. Do they care that we have such a huge celebration of our independence from them? Do they feel like parents whose children flaunt their rebellious attitude right in their faces? Or do they think of us at all?
We as Americans are glad of our independence and are appreciative to all the early fathers who penned and supported these words in the Declaration of Independence, "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness...."
These words are a wonderful beginning of one of the greatest documents ever written. God Bless America!
