Happy Independence Day, America!

April 19, 2008


“What a glorious morning this is!”

— Samuel Adams (to John Hancock at the Battle of Lexington, Massachusetts, 19 April 1775)

This day is the day Americans (well, citizens of the state of Massachusetts, anyway) STARTED the fight for American independence! Woohooo! I know, July 4, 1776, is THE day Congress officially declared it. But as with anything in America, the quest for independence began with the people themselves. What a wonderful way to wake up, realizing that!
