Happy 4th of July, with fireworks this year??

 

 

It is so hot around the country that many places have cancelled their Fireworks for today!

Check out this interesting article on the history of Fireworks and why we use them to celebrate the 4th of July. The practice was mentioned by John Adams in 1776 as the way we should celebrate!

People might participate in parades, festivals, picnics, barbeques, and other family and community celebrations.

We live in the Philadelphia area.  We are right in the middle of wonderful historic places, museums, parks, and historical research.

Lots of great info at the National Park website http://www.nps.gov/inde/index.htm

This day commemorates the independence of the newly born United States of America. As an American, we need to honor those who sacrificed in our history for our freedom, as well as those who continue to sacrifice with their time, their health, and sometimes their lives today.

Remember the military families, police, fire, and rescue workers as often as you can! Be part of activities, events, and fund raisers for their safety and the support of their families.

Thank God for our government and the difficult decisions that they have to make at times to keep us safe.

Happy Independence Day!
