July 4th Independence Day

In case you have heard, today is Independence Day! Celebrate it! Go out and set some fireworks off. Have a cook out. Visit a statue. Today was the day the Continental Congress signed the Declaration of Independence, all 56 of them representing 13 states, 2.5 million people in 1776. The document was actually finished on July 2nd but it took two days for the government to get together and sign it. Today, it would probably take 50 years to do the same thing, if it could ever get done. So if nothing else, celebrate a time when government did actually do something!

How to celebrate – Have a picnic. Reads about the Revolution. Check out Elliot and Friends, Independence Day at the Museum.
