As with many of you, there will be a party today at my place. I have a pool, a big back yard, a fire pit, and city fireworks are literally just over a block away. The food will be good as always, the beverages will be iced. Current count is 23, but we may have even more if the local police cars swing by for Code 7 (lunch).
It’s high summer, and celebrating in a patriotic way is something that we do because if you come by my home, you’re a patriot. Those who aren’t, won’t feel comfortable in our midst.
Party or no, take a pause for the cause and recall that which made the nation exceptional. Freedom isn’t free.
