Land of the Free

Now, I am usually not the type to jump on holiday ware, or the over eccentric holiday enthusiast but I was listening to the radio on my way to work one morning and the radio announcers were explaining a study recently conducted. The results of this study showed that approximately 1 in 4 Americas don’t know why we celebrate the 4th of July. And 1 in 4 of the people who do know, cannot tell you what country we received independence from. This saddens me. To be honest, I took a citizenship  test in participation in government class just to see if i’d pass…and well let’s just say I’m glad I was born here. History is not my thing. But the 4th of July is at the core of our countries foundation. How can 25% of the country not know what happened on that day?

So I decided this fourth of July to grab my sisters, and some flags and really celebrate our freedom. To spend some time not only goofing off in the field but really remembering the people who still fight everyday to keep our freedom. So thank you to those who are serving and continue to serve.
