Today is Independence Day, one of my very favorite holidays. I love the patriotism, unity, colorful festivities, and traditions of the 4th of July. I hope you enjoy BBQing with friends and watching fireworks. Don’t forget to think back on the men and women who sacrificed for our nation’s freedom, and I recommend listening to some good ole’ John Philip Sousa to put you in a patriotic mood. Happiest 4th of July to you and yours!
