Happy 4th!

Today is the day we celebrate the independence of our nation. I come from a long line of freedom defenders and I must say I am proud to be a citizen of this great nation. What a blessing it is to be able to speak my mind and worship as I please. So today as we eat our hotdogs and watch the beautiful fireworks, I hope we can all pause and remember those men and women who keep this nation safe from harm and make it possible for our bbq's to take place!

I just got on your blog and was pleased to see you had already written this morning. You expressed my sentiments exactly. I never see the flag or hear the National Anthem that I don't get chill bumps. I don't understand the unpatriotic people at all. The Mayor of Denver invited a Blacl woman Jazz singer to sing our National Anthem at a big meeting they were having. She sang the "Black National Anthem" to the tune of "The Star Spangled Banner" Now she can't understand why everyone is upset with her ..."She should be able to express herself any way she chooses without asking permission"
How stupid can you be? Where will it all end? At the Sefcond Coming I guess.

Love you Grandma E.
