We will all do well to remember that July 4th is so much more than a day to eat, drink, shoot fireworks, and generally have a good time. It is the reason for the celebration that is important. I invite you to take a few minutes out of your day, and read the Declaration of Independence. If you do, the food and drink will taste that much better, the fireworks will appear that much brighter, and you will be that much prouder to call yourself an American.
