Well today is a special day in our history. Today not only marks the birth of a new country but a choice that we were no longer to be owned and ruled by kings, instead giving us regular people the power to choose who we want.
While not ever country may view this day as special:
But I sure do.
So however you like to celebrate, whether you treat this day seriously or have fun:
Enjoy your day, but always remember what it stands for.
“You’re a grand old flag, you’re a high flying flag
And forever in peace may you wave.
You’re the emblem of the land I love.
The home of the free and the brave.
Ev’ry heart beats true ‘neath the Red, White and Blue,
Where there’s never a boast or brag.
Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
Keep your eye on the grand old flag.”
-You’re a Grand Old Flag
Happy 4th of July everybody!
Today we celebrate the birth of our country.
A country that was going to be different than any other. One that wouldn’t have a king with all power, but a President with limited power, and the people would be the ones to hold sway. A county based on giving people rights and allowing them to make their own decisions. Happy Birthday United States of America!
So while you’re eating your BBQ and shooting off fireworks, never forget what this holiday stands for.
Okay I loved the original Conan films with Arnold Schwarzenegger, I thought they were absolutely great. (To read more of my thoughts on the first film, go here.)
So anyways, I found this pic on the internet and it is hilarious. 🙂 And it got me thinking…Wouldn’t Conan make an awesome librarian? I mean with him there would be no late fees, ever.
Let me show you what happens to people who keep items past their due date!
He would use all his strength and power to pass on the love of reading.
“Mongol General: Conan! What is best in life?
Conan: To teach people how to use the online catalog, help people find the books they want, and create children and adult reading programs!”
Think about it people. Sometimes the way of the future can be pulled out of the past.
Now in other news, today is a very special day in our world & nation’s history. Not only is it Veterans’ Day, but 2014 marks the 100th anniversary of WWI. I would just like to take the time to give a shout out to all the veterans who have served, and all the troops currently serving. Thank you so much for everything you have done and for all the sacrifices you have made. I am so happy to live in a country that gives honor to those who deserve it for all that they do. Happy Veteran’s Day!
