Tomorrow is the 4th of July. This day is a BIG day for Americans. We celebrate American Independence Day on the Fourth of July every year. We think of July 4, 1776, as a day that represents the Declaration of Independence and the birth of the United States of America as an independent nation. The American flag is red, white and blue. The colors were chosen to represent valor (red), liberty and purity (white), and justice and loyalty (blue). The stripes represent the original 13 colonies that became the original 13 states. The stars represent each state of these 50 United States we call America. Our flag is so important that its history tells the story of America itself. It represents the freedom, dignity, and true meaning of being an American.
Sadly, this year, our big birthday bash will not be celebrated as it usually is. But we Americans are still showing our love and support for our big day by proudly displaying our stars and stripes. These are the flags I saw on our latest walk-about.
We proudly display our flag too. We’ve raised “our kids” right too. Lucie and Vinnie are proud, patriotic Americans as well.
Happy Birthday to the land I love. Happy Birthday America. May this beautiful flag FOREVER wave!
Stay safe and stay well Everyone. Have a happy, safe 4th of July. ‘Til next time.
