Celebrating Independence every day

With Independence Day having happened Tuesday, everyone is probably sorting through pictures of fireworks shows and family gatherings while reflecting on the time they spent celebrating.

When I think of Independence Day, I think of all the times I spent with my family camping and watching fireworks. July 3 was my late aunt’s birthday, and we’d all gather to celebrate the Nation’s birthday and hers. So this holiday has always been special to me.

Besides the celebration, bright fireworks, and the belting of patriotic songs of my childhood, I found myself drawn to learning history as I grew up.
