Independence Day

Independence Day

Fireworks, parades, picnics, concerts, baseball games and barbecues. Fourth of July is my favorite time of the summer. I won’t get too political here, maybe nostalgic is a better word.

As Americans, this year we will commemorate the adoption of the Declaration of Independence 241 years ago declaring that the thirteen original colonies were a new nation. Growing up in one of the original colonies, Connecticut, I was keenly aware of this history and extraordinary past. It was all around us. I lived in a house that was built before the revolutionary war. Our town beach still has cannons pointing out into Long Island Sound reminding us of the ideals our forefathers fought for. In a time when our country is so divided, let’s remember how we got here. Have you ever read the Declaration of Independence? Or listened to the words? Every year I listen to the newscasters, reporters and commentators on NPR read the Declaration during Morning Edition on July 4th. 2017 will mark the 29th year that NPR has featured this tradition. Take a listen. It will bring tears to your eyes and remind us exactly why we celebrate July Fourth.
