One more year has passed... one more year of ups and downs in the stock market, more questions about our government than you can shake a stick at... one more year of disasters.... births, deaths...

It's disheartening to see that a lot of Americans don't even know what we celebrate July4th for anymore. It's all about BBQ'ing, family, and booze.

How many paused for those that died for our country? How many took the time to re-read the Constitution of the United States?

Who thanked a soldier, sailor, paramedic or pilot?

Did you take the time to teach your kids that the 4th of July isn't just about food and fireworks?

How many 9 and 10 year olds know the preamble to the Consitution of the United States? Bill of Rights? or can list any of the Amendments?

This is important stuff. Most kids can list what you do in the first 10 levels of Grand Theft Auto, but can't name even 5 of the Amendments to the Consitution...

Maybe I'm just being morose... but I see this as an indicator to the downfall of the US. {sigh} Back to the kitchen for me. lol. I'll post the salad I made last night and maybe that will improve my mood. lol.
