An American Editor

Happy Birthday, America!

Today, Americans celebrate the birthdate of our nation, July 4th. To get us in the celebratory mood, I invite you to watch the Muppets perform John Phillip Sousa’s Stars and Stripes.

The following flash mob video of the Stars and Stripes is also entertaining.

The next video is a reading of the Declaration of Independence, from beginning to end, something we rarely ever do or hear. It is a reminder of the brilliance of its primary author, Thomas Jefferson, and the words he chose, which set in motion our great revolution and the aspirations of people around the globe to be free. The words of the Declaration of Independence inspired people in 1776 and remain inspirational today. I encourage you to watch the following video from beginning to end.

Happy 4th of July!
