The 4th is apparently the day the dead return to earth and roam among the living.

Temper tantrum officially over?

The 4th of July to me, is the beginning of a wonderful experiment in the equality of all man and woman kind. We still haven't extended rights to everyone, but we will despite those who hate groups of people and want to keep them down. It represents the attitude "Question Authority". Don't bow down to heirs of money empires. Don't bow down to stupid politicians or anyone who claims to have all the answers.

The celebration of the birth of the greatest nation this earth has ever seen. Although it was not without dire consiquences; mainly the appalling treatment of Native Americans. (We've got slavery in there too.)

Celebrate with pride, but don't ignore the shame.
