Let Freedom Ring: It's 4th of July!

Let’s not forget why we celebrate 4th of July.  It is the day Will Smith saved us from the aliens.

Oh, wait, no.  That's not it!

In all seriousness, I get kinda emotional on the 4th of July.  Watching the fireworks and listening to the patriotic songs reminds me that I'm part of a great country.  Politics aside, America isn't all too bad.  Even if I don't agree with a lot of what's going on, it's still my country.

Barack Obama (there's the politics!) tells it well in this quote:
"There is not a liberal America and a conservative America – there is the United States of America. There is not a black America and a white America and Latino America and Asian America … there’s the United States of America."

How will you be celebrating the 4th of July?
What is your favorite patriotic song?
