I had a feeling to write this today,not sure how it willturn out ,but thanks for reading. I remember the 4th of july since I was a child,Easy to do because I was born on the 3rd. In my youth we played outside in the summer ,even in the winter. There seems to be a huge unrest in this country these days ,political folks deciding what they want for our future ,Not what is best for her. I just can't figure it all out sometimes,we fight among each other to get what WE want ,and to heck with the other guy. My best memories of the fourth of July were in the summer of 1976,why? That was a very special time for America,it was the 200th birthday ,So we were very patriotic ,not just for that day ,but for a very long time after. Nowdays with the vast differences here in America I cant feel that patriotic this fourth,I am very grateful to those who have served in our armed forces,But I look to the future and I'm scared. Scared that the government will be running this country into the ground and removing the very core of what this nation really means to us. So let's all enjoy our God Given rights while we still have them,This may be the last real celebration we have .
