4th of July Reflections

Submitted by Fred Bodin:

I try to keep two things in mind about the 4th of July: It’s a celebration of family, friends, and cookouts; concerts, parades and fireworks. And it’s also a recognition of those who have served and sacrificed to achieve our independence, and keep it since 1776.

Ruth Pino, a local realtor, sends out occasional motivational and timely quotes. Here are two from today: “You have to love a nation that celebrates its independence every July 4, not with a parade of guns, tanks, and soldiers who file by the White House in a show of strength and muscle, but with family picnics where kids throw Frisbees, the potato salad gets iffy, and the flies die from happiness. You may think you have overeaten, but it is patriotism.” ~Erma Bombeck. And this one: “This nation will remain the land of the free only so long as it is the home of the brave.” ~Elmer Davis
