The Fourth of July!

I was speaking to a friend today whose family came to this country to escape Germany under Hitler. Relatives who stayed died. Her mother, who is over ninety now, loves this holiday and celebrates it well. She was worried under Bush that she was seeing tyranny again. Perhaps, this weekend is an opportunity to celebrate what we borrow and what we build, and to remember the lives given so we can stay on an honorable track.
