Parades, cooking out (hopefully between thunderstorms!), fireworks!
Hobby Lobby took out a full-page ad full of quotes about God and the United States, see it here. You can see all their past ads (Christmas, Easter, Independence Day) here.
I'm going to try this recipe for dessert today, except I'm going to use Angel Food Cake.
Hope you have a great Independence Day!
IN CONGRESS, JULY 4, 1776
The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America
When in the Course of human events it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.
