I read this article in our local paper, the Hickory Daily Record......not sure if it's been posted before, but once again, something definitely worth reading IMO. It was in the editorials section. Letter the the Editor Personal note from Catgirl: I hear the fireworks all around.......have already heard the firetrucks go out. I agree with some others who've posted on various threads, TEACH your children the true meaning of this day. Have fun, be safe, but remember WHY. It's IMPORTANT. I'm SO glad my parents/teachers cared enough about me to show me that. I hope all of you have, and ARE having, a WONDERFUL 4th of July!!!
