Happy fourth of July! This is a new kind of fourth for me.
No big party, no hot dogs or red velvet cake, none of my uncle’s illegal fireworks…
Instead, I am in a hotel room. In Washington D.C. I am doing online homework and my husband is catching up on much needed sleep. I guess it’s only fair that I don’t get my fireworks, because he spent Canada day in Minnesota without his Riverwalk, fireworks, or special bag of doughnuts.
We may not have our traditions, but we do have each other, and our freedom.
Our nation is lost, but not forgotten. God Bless America!
