Happy Fourth of July!

4 Jul


Did you know …

that Thomas Jefferson was only 33 when he wrote the Declaration of Independence? That both Thomas Jefferson & John Adams–the only two signers of the Declaration who went on to be President–both died on July 4, 1826? That 155 million hot dogs will be eaten in the U.S. on July 4th alone? That the Liberty Bell, so it won’t crack, hasn’t been rung since 1846? That each year, it’s tapped 13 times in honor of the original colonies?

Whether you go all out at the Nation’s Capital and watch fireworks over the water, or have a humble backyard BBQ, be thankful for the country we live in and the patriots that make it all possible, daily.

Happy Fourth of July.
