July 4

 


Happy Fourth of July and welcome once again to Toni Taddeo's Tuesday 4!     


Let's talk about Independence Day.


1. In previous times every family read the Declaration of Independence and the Bill of Rights on July 4 to keep in mind the huge price paid by a minority of patriots  for freedom and liberty.    What do you think about this tradition?  I hope you will institute it and value it.  It is so important.

2. Fresh made lemonade was a huge deal in the Midwest when Laura Ingalls Wilder was a young girl. It was a very special treat.    Every family brought a dish to the town celebration.     What foods and drinks will you have on this important day?

3. Will you be watching fireworks.. a great American tradition on this day?  They are deeply rooted in the American tradition .

4.  Will your flag be out?   Do you own one?

 Quick 4th fact: Did you know that the term Commander in Chief cannot be used except in times of Congressionally declared war? A president has no authority over the military until then.
