Happy 4th of July

For our readers outside the US, the 4th of July is our Independence day. It has become terribly commercialized. Its meaning has been subjugated to other imperatives. I personally find this sad, as the freedoms we enjoy here in the US are sadly not enjoyed everywhere … and the meaning of this day in our history is being diluted.
Our freedoms come at a cost, sometimes a terrible one. We ought to remember this on our day of independence. Be happy for what we have, and remember what it cost to obtain this.

  1. A colleague of min,who like me is British, told me a story a while ago about a trip to the US that spanned the 4th July.
    She was asked by a local if we celebrated Independence Day in the UK. Her reply was brilliant:
    Nope, that’s one we lost!
