The Fourth of July is one of my most favorite days of the year.
We celebrated just as John Adams hoped we would over 200 years ago.
" I am apt to believe that it will be celebrated by succeeding generations as
the great anniversary festival.
It ought to be commemorated as the day of deliverance,
by solemn acts of devotion to God Almighty.
It ought to be solemnized with pomp and parade, with shows, games, sports,
guns, bells, bonfires, and illuminations,
from one end of this continent to the other, from this time forward forever more."
