What are you doing today?
I hope you’re….
Hugging your family.
Eating corn on the cob.
Tying bandanas on your dog’s neck (much to its chagrin).
Thinking about big ideas like freedom, responsibility, bravery, sacrifice, community and diversity.
Watching the West Wing. #Bartlett2016
Slurping up too much watermelon.
Thinking about the family history that lead you to this great old melting pot/salad bowl of a country.
Grilling in the back yard.
Watching sparkling fireworks rain in the sky with an appropriate sense of wonder and delight.
Saying prayers that this old republic of ours will continue in virtue.
In short, I hope you have a beautiful Fourth of July.
