|Flowers bursting in the air
You have to love a nation that celebrates its independence every July 4,
not with a parade of guns, tanks, and soldiers
who file by the White House in a show of strength and muscle,
but, with family picnics where kids throw Frisbees,
the potato salad gets iffy,
and the flies die from happiness.
You may think you have overeaten, but it is patriotism.
Wishing you all a day surrounded with loved one and filled with celebration.
