IN RUSSIA IT’S THE 4th OF JULY IN AMERICA
IT’S INDEPENDENCE DAY
I’ve finally reached the end of my rope with Americans that don’t respect their country. And I know they mean well, but damn it, Today is “Independence Day”. You do not say: “Happy 25th of December or Happy first of January”. On your Birthday do you get a card that says, Happy June 22nd? The 4th of July is just a day on the calendar. Independence Day should make you reflect on the sacrifices of the “Minute Men” and “The Sons of The American Revolution” . It should make you think about the courage of the George Washingtons, Thomas Jeffersons and Nathan Hale. Nathan Hale was barely 21 when he chose death over selling out his country. He was hung as a spy for the “Colonists”.
Today is a day many will appreciate as a 3rd day of a 3 day week end. Barbeque sales will be at their peak today. Many pre-school students will associate the term “Independence Day” with ID4. The Will Smith movie where we defend our planet from Aliens. In a sad way, it seems that Hollywood wants to overlook the essence of the real “Independence Day” and replace it with a “New World Order” Independence day. If you want your kids to get a better Idea of what we’re celebrating, let them watch “The Patriot”.
Today please remember; “Freedom is not free”. A price was paid for our autonomy. The willingness to FIGHT for our freedom was the cost of freedom. Those who risked their lives and those who sacrificed their lives; paid the ultimate price of freedom. No, freedom is not free. It never was and never will be.
If you can put down your bottle rockets, or your barbequed chicken wing long enough to reflect back on the Love and sacrifice that was shown for Liberty, you will indeed be glorifying the true meaning of Independence Day.
