I just wanted to wish everyone out there in the U.S. a Happy Independence Day tjomorrow!! With all the fear of contagion and political turmoil, I think that it is more important than ever to remember what this holiday stands for, and to come to together to celebrate not what issues we have with one another, but what brings us together as one nation. I linked this to a post I wrote a few years ago, because I think it is even more important today. Happy Holiday and stay safe out there my friends!

Tomorrow is officially the day we celebrate our Independence in the United States, but the festivities have already started! (In my neighborhood, we’ve been hearing firecrackers go off in the evening all week!)
On this most important of national holidays, we recognize that our country, despite our differences, our problems, and our political debates, we all share a core of ideals and values. We acknowledge that though we are far from perfect, we still have such potential, along with the freedom to choose our own destinies.
Tomorrow, and this week, is the perfect time to set aside our petty arguments and embrace that which makes us all Americans. Take a moment to remember that we have servicemen and women overseas even now, sacrificing to keep our values and our safety intact.
