It can be forgotten, when the negatives in the USA devour the positives in the coverage they receive--that we are in a good place! I love seeing kids, dads, mom, grandparents, friends and relatives getting together, enjoying each other and celebrating our nation, just 239 years old, the length of only three 80 year old lives!
The Independence Day slideshow below features much of my family and many of my friends. If you watch it, you will find it very typical and maybe even ordinary. But this is my kind of ordinary! It could be any American family in any American neighborhood.
An Independence Day message at the end. Hoping you and your family had a great holiday!
