Signs of Summer
It's a summer phenomenon here in the States. About the time the season changes to Summer these colorful tents pop up everywhere selling fireworks for the 4th of July holiday. Sometimes they are as beautiful as the fireworks themselves.
I hope all my US friends have a great Independence Day week and that all my transplanted US friends can take time to celebrate Independence Day wherever they are in the world. It is important to remember that we are all Americans and that despite what the news media and the Congress says we are a great nation and what we do in the world is important. I celebrate those in uniform across the world helping make the world a better place not only for Americans but for all. They are our best ambassadors. I only hope all this anti war rhetoric doesn't diminish the pride they should have in themselves no matter what anyone thinks about the politics of the War in Iraq.
Take care and have a great Monday.
