Independence Day

As I always say on holidays, please remember what the day is all about.

The Revolutionary War always fascinated me, and I still get a thrill walking around Philadelphia.  One of the first "real" books I read as a kid was a Benjamin Franklin biography.  I'm still amazed by the foresight of the founding fathers and how documents crafted nearly 250 years still hold up today.

Picnics, barbecues and fireworks are great, but Independence Day is so much more than that.
