After The 4th July

Here in America it is the day after the Fourth Of July. The date doesn't really matter. Just remember the Fourth of July is over. The barbecues and fireworks have finished. People are waking up, slightly hung over, already planning for next years big celebration.

For those unfamiliar with American holidays, the Fourth of July is the most important holiday in our history. It's when we officially declared our independence from England. It was the birth of our country. The Fourth is more important then Christmas. Christmas applies only to those or a certain religion. The Fourth of July is for every American here by birth or naturalized.

However, it's now after the Fourth of July. What happens now? The usual, most will go back to our everyday lives. We will forget about the flag, the country (unless it's to complain about our Government), and our soldiers.

Maybe my patriotism offends some. I will not apologize for that. First Amendment says I don't need to. That's the one that guarantees free speech. There are others. you should know them. If not Google them. Because that's what the Fourth of July is really about.

I, too, am very patriotic and I don't believe that our forefathers would be pleased with the way that the constitution has been bastardized of late! Never apologize for being loyal to the greatest country in the worlds!
