Independence Day

SDP  7-4-12
Happy Birthday, America! While many Americans are enjoying barbecues, hotdogs, ballgames and the beach, others are reflecting on the meaning of this day and why colonists separated from the tyranny of England's King George to establish a sovereign nation protecting individual freedoms. I spotted this proud patriot, Elizabeth, hanging bunting on her home for the holiday. God bless and protect America!

Wonderful shot. Enjoy the holiday!

Her house is very well suited to hanging bunting. Why don't we do both? Have some fun and reflect on our good fortune to live in a nation that -- for the most part -- tolerates differences and affords freedoms.

I'm late, but I hope the staff of SDP enjoyed her holiday.
