Happy Fourth of July

by wintersixfour
You have to love a nation that celebrates its independence every July 4, not with a parade of guns, tanks, and soldiers who file by the White House in a show of strength and muscle, but with family picnics where kids throw frisbees, the potato salad gets iffy, and the flies die from happiness.  You may think you have overeaten, but it is patriotism. 
 ~Erma Bombeck

And I'm proud to be an American,
where at least I know I'm free.
And I won't forget the men who died,
who gave that right to me.
~Lee Greenwood

It is easy to take liberty for granted, when you have never had it taken from you. 
 ~Author unknown, sometimes attributed to M. Grundler
