All-American holiday

Today's the Fourth of July, our nation's birthday -- and one of my favorite holidays.

I love its patriotic nature, and the old-fashioned celebrations it inspires: Parades, cookouts, days at the beach (or poolside, depending on where you live). I love the fireworks, red-white-and-blue themes and Stars and Strips flying high everywhere.

In addition to reminding me of the freedoms we enjoy in America, it also makes me grateful for those who serve our country to keep us free and to help others gain freedom or escape oppression all over the world.

Happy Fourth of July, everyone!
