Happy Birthday, America!

As a US History teacher, I could bore you to death with wonderful, historic, and patriotic things to post today. But since flags, fireworks, and fun food are on the brain, I’ll refrain.

Instead, I ask that you watch this short video. I pray you’ll be moved, encouraged, nostalgic, and full of pride and gratefulness for just exactly what it means to live in The United States of America.

 

Happy 4th!

Share with me: What are your 4th of July plans and traditions?

    I remember seeing that video clip years ago. I’m a patriot at heart – was actually “accused” of being patriotic in high school *gasp* when I complained that a U.S. Government teacher was going about teaching his class in a horrible fashion. I’ll never forget the teachers first words on the first day of class: “Our government sucks.” I dropped his class immediately. Anyway, I digress…

    We’re blessed to live in the Land of 10,000 lakes and we spent the 3rd & 4th with my in-law’s at their lake home. We’ll spend tonight and tomorrow at a different lake with my side of the family at my brother’s lake home. Lots of food, swimming, fireworks and mosquito spray. I hope you have a fun weekend in store!
