4th of July Barbecue
Gather family and friends and celebrate the hard-earned freedom of the United States of America.
At twilight, we head to the beach for fireworks. As night finally falls, the national anthem plays to the sights and sound of fireworks. My breath catches in my throat and I remember just how fortunate we are to be in America. I remember our founding fathers and the wisdom they brought to creating this great country. I remember my ancestors who immigrated from Ireland and Italy just two generations ago. And I say a quick prayer of thanksgiving and protection for our soldiers serving throughout the world to ensure our freedom and our way of life. From Alaska to Florida and all points in between this is a great country, filled with great people – truly a reason to celebrate!
