4th of July Weekend

I'm heading up to Idaho this weekend for the 4th of July. Before I go, though, I like to read the Declaration of Independence and the United States Constitution. I try to read both a couple times a year, and I make it a point to read them around the 4th of July. They are short documents, and they serve as good reminders.

At any rate, I hope you have some festivities planned for the 4th, and I also hope that we can all take a minute to reflect on our nation, our founders and what we can do to be better citizens.

Enjoy this rendition of the Star Spangled Banner from the United States Marine Band. Also, I've included a fun video from JibJab and ThePartyParty.com of former presidents saying words that belong in the national anthem. Finally, there is a version of the Star Spangled Banner that teaches you the words to the song.

Happy 4th of July!

  1. Have a fun holiday. I think it is neat that you read those documents around Independence Day. Speaking of being better citizens, something remarkable and I have haven’t heard of in recent times was the President’s call to summer service that he said in a video address a few weeks ago referred to as “United We Serve”. Volunteering and service in communities to help so many during these tough times. I thought it was inspiring and wonderful!!!
