It’s America’s birthday and I’m celebrating. My Army Sergeant son is still in Japan–Okinawa. My Navy Lieutenant daughter’s still in the DC area in the next in her long line of Navy jobs. They do not leave her in one position for long! I thank both of them and all those soldiers who fought for America’s uncertain future so long ago.
God be with all of us.
I want to include all my efriends from Canada in the celebrations though I’m a few days late for Canada Day:
July 1 is Canada Day. It commemorates the joining of Canada’s original three provinces (Nova Scotia, New Brunswick and the Canada province, which is now Ontario and Quebec) as one nation in 1867. The holiday was previously called Dominion Day, for the Dominion of Canada in the British empire.
