America's Birthday! July 4, 1776. This makes us 238 years old! We all debate on which direction politically this country should go but today is a day for celebration not for squabbling and rhetoric. What does America mean to me?
The 4th of July is many things to many people. Parades, cookouts, fireworks and celebrating America’s independence are the most common. Sometimes we take in a ball game, either at the ball park or on TV. Don’t be looking for a ballgame on ESPN around 1pm and again at 7pm, that’s when ESPN airs the all athletic endurance run that is, the 'Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest.'
