I pledge allegiance to the flag
of the United States of America,
and to the republic for which it stands,
one nation under God, indivisible,
with liberty and justice for all.
I’ve always loved the 4th of July! As far as holidays go, there aren’t a ton of expectations associate with it, there’s no tension between religious observation and commercialism, and it includes some of my very favorite things — freedom, family, food and fireworks! (I really didn’t plan for all of those to begin with “f”…)
To my fellow Americans: I hope today is filled with all of those good things (and more!).
Have a wonderful 4th of July!
