I hope everyone enjoys the 4th. It looks like it could be a bit damp but we will just have to make the best of it I guess. While we are celebrating here is something to remember about why we enjoy this special day.

Don't forget those who paid the price so that we could enjoy this day !

Remember: freedom is never free ! !

We may never know the accuracy of the information about many things that happened almost 240 years ago, but it does make the point that there were many that went through a lot of suffering just so today people can have a 4th of July party.

What is really sad (and maddening) is when a student brings something like this into the classroom. There are unfortunately people that get a thrill out of intentionally perpetuating distortions like this. I am not talking about Old Scout, he was just a victim of this sort of thing.
