Happy 4th of July

It is the weekend for barbecues, potato salad, apple pie and ice cream. It is the day of fireworks, parades and flag waving. It is the day we declared our indpendence.

WILLIAM LLOYD GARRISON 1806—1879 Poem - Independence Day!

The bells are ringing merrily,
The cannon loudly roar,
And thunder-shouts for Liberty
Are heard from shore to shore;
And countless banners to the breeze
Their stars and stripes display:
What call for sights and sounds like these ?
'Tis Independence day!

To celebrate the 4th of July and put the fire in your loins, a clip from the movie Independence Day. Enjoy!
