  1. With the heightened security in DC for the July 4th weekend, will the Obamas still be hosting their extravaganza that brings thousands to watch fireworks on the National Mall ? And, will the WH be washed in red, white and blue ?

  2. Speaking of July 4th and the Declaration of Independence, here’s a portion of a letter written by John Adams to his wife Abigail on July 3, 1776. In part, John writes:

    “I am apt to believe that it (the signing of the Declaration) will be celebrated, by succeeding Generations, as the great anniversary Festival. It ought to be commemorated, as the Day of Deliverance by solemn Acts of Devotion to God Almighty. It ought to be solemnized with Pomp and Parade, with Shews, Games, Sports, Guns, Bells, Bonfires and Illuminations from one End of this Continent to the other from this Time forward forever more.

    “You will think me transported with Enthusiasm but I am not. — I am well aware of the Toil and Blood and Treasure, that it will cost Us to maintain this Declaration, and support and defend these States. — Yet through all the Gloom I can see the Rays of ravishing Light and Glory. I can see that the End is more than worth all the Means. And that Posterity will tryumph in that Days Transaction, even altho We should rue it, which I trust in God We shall not.”

    Some historians write that we are in the third great challenge to our nation. Each challenge could have dissolved the Nation had it turned the tide against us.

    The first challenge–the Founding days of our nation. Could have gone either way.

    The second challenge–the Civil War. Certainly could have gone either way.

    The third challenge–Our current era, which began in the mid-1960′ and which could go either way. Will we remain a Constitutional Republic or will we collapse as a Nation?

    Celebrate Independence day as John Adams would have us celebrate it. With joy, thanksgiving, fireworks and parades. That day is what made us an exceptional nation.
