It's all about FREEDOM: the 4th of July Parade
By Jacquie Meck


July 14, 2006

Gosh Folks, THINK about what the 4th of July is all about!

According to WIKIPEDIA: "In the United States, Independence Day, also called the Fourth of July, is a federal holiday celebrating the adoption of the Declaration of Independence in 1776."

This country was founded because people wanted the right to be able to express themselves!

I am glad that we have so many people supporting our military, and I do too - I am ever so grateful for those who protect all of us. None-the-less, we also have to respect the rights of others to speak for their beliefs too.

The theme was "INDEPENDENCE" wasn't it?
