It's the Fourth of July! Here's what wikipedia says about this holiday
July 4, 2011
Independence Day, commonly known as the Fourth of July, is a federal holiday in the United States commemorating the adoption of the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776, declaring independence from the Kingdom of Great Britain. Independence Day is commonly associated with fireworks, parades, barbecues, carnivals, fairs, picnics, concerts, baseball games, family reunions, political speeches and ceremonies, and various other public and private events celebrating the history, government, and traditions of the United States. Independence Day is the national day of the United States.
I say today is a great opportunity to serve our listener and remind them how amazing it is to have freedom. There are a lot of people working today to make it fun: firework crews, parks and recreation departments, police, fire and ambulances are ready to direct traffic and pedestrians so a good time can be had by all. Grocery checkers, gas station attendants, doctors, emergency room personnel, our veterans and current service people deserve a salute and prayer, and if you get the chance give a shout out to our founding fathers before you jump in the pool.
