God Bless The USA!

Nothing strikes closer to my heart than people gathering to celebrate the heroes that have fought to for our country. Although John Adams was a couple of days off, he said it best:
The second day of July, 1776, will be the most memorable epoch in the history of America. I am apt to believe that it 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 shows, games, sports, guns, bells, bonfires, and illuminations, from one end of this continent to the other, from this time forward forever more.
----John Adams (to his wife Abigail)
