The 4th of July. Man. How do I put this. I'm just going to say it.
A tiny group of people sailed across the ocean in vessels which had no power aside from sails. All they wanted was freedom. They believed in their
dream. They were willing to die for it. Man. Think about that for a moment. A group of men who called my hometown (Philadelphia) home took on the
mightiest army on the planet known as the British Empire.
They might have been farmers, blacksmiths, silver smiths but man, they saw what they wanted and then fought for it. They had more stones than every
one of us here on ATS put together. They told the King of England to kiss off.
Ever read the Declaration of Independence?
Declaration Of Independence
Will I have a BBQ? DARN right! And will I remember why we have the holiday? DARN RIGHT! America was founded on just more than a fable or two. These
men and women did it. They knew what they wanted and DID IT! In my book that is pretty darn cool.
America the Beautiful. Yes you are. I love almost everything about you.
Happy Birthday America.
