Happy Independence Day, America
It may be pessimistic, but July 4th always marks the beginning of the end of summer for me. Then again, I prefer cold weather, so perhaps I’m trying to will fall and winter to get here sooner. Regardless, this does not diminish the importance of this day.
So, Happy Independence Day, America! And a special thanks to the troops serving near and far, today.
Here are a few links to get us in the spirit:
- President Obama’s Independence Day message (via DoD)
- Admiral Mike Mullen’s Independence Day blog message
- Independence Day 2010 (SWJ)
Links to two organization’s I hope you consider supporting today and throughout the year:
And finally, because I’m incapable of being serious for this long, here’s some etymology of the song, Yankee Doodle. And to accompany this, one so-bad-it’s-awesome patriotic rendition of Yankee Doodle performed by Suzanne Somers circa 1978, care of Pour Me Coffee.
Happy Fourth of July!
