God Bless America

Just a quick post this 4th to celebrate the birth of a nation.  It is always good to take the time to remember where we came from and why we have the liberties we do.  Take the time to teach your kids the same lessons you learned growing up and when they grow up they can appreciate the sacrifices made by those that came before them to give them this great country.
 Also I am currently reading 1776 by David McCullough.  This is the 3rd or 4th book on the birth of our country I have read in the past few months and I must say that it is living up to the hype.  Pick it up if you get the opportunity and expand your knowledge on our history.
Tonight I celebrate with a little fireworks and with any luck I will still have all my digits when its over.  All the rest of you - Be Safe and God Bless.
