Happy July 4th!
July 4th is our country’s birthday. Happy birthday, United States!
July 4th Quote
I love this Erma Bombeck quote about our nation’s birthday. Yes we celebrate not with tanks, guns and showing the world our military strength.
“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.”
We put the emphasis on family, fellowship and of course food. And don’t forget “even the flies die from happiness.” She had quite a way with words, didn’t she?
If you are in the U.S. how will you celebrate today?
Hi Jean! I agree with Erma. So much better to celebrate with family and faith. Hope you had a good celebration!
