"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." ~Erma Bombeck
My family will be hosting a cookout Sunday evening for our church family. There will be hamburgers, hot dogs and lots of laughter as we celebrate our nation's Independence Day. We will even be setting off fireworks for the first time (thanks to a change in RI law that now allows individuals to shoot off fireworks!).
How do you plan to celebrate this weekend?
