As the wheel turns the seasons fly. Wasn’t it just spring? The summer is flying by and soon we will see pumpkins on the horizon. But, before all that happens, it’s time to take a minute and appreciate this beautiful country we live in. With all it’s ups and downs, there is none better. “Home of the Brave and the Free”. . . . song lyrics that says it all.
Independence Day, the Fourth of July, commemorates the adoption of the Declaration of Independence 241 years ago on July 4, 1776. On July 2nd, the continental congress declared that the 13 American colonies considered themselves a new nation, the United States of America, and not a part of the British Empire.
And so we will celebrate this great country with parades, speeches and a gathering of family at back yard BBQ’s. Uptown Girl Soap wishes a safe and happy 4th of July to each and every one. Take a minute and remember why we celebrate this day.
