It ought to be solemnized with pomp and parade, with shows, games, sports, guns, bells, bonfires and illuminations, from one end of the country to the other, from this time forward forever more.
Happy Independence Day to all of our authors, readers, commenters, and friends.
While you enjoy barbecues, picnics, boating, fishing, fireworks, parades, swimming–whatever you do this weekend to celebrate and to enjoy the holiday–please remember the troops and all of those who have fought and some of whom have died to make us and to keep us free!!!
May God bless them and may God bless the United States of America.
Long may our flag wave.
