My granddaughter and great-granddaughter’s are coming to Granny’s cottage for a July 4th cookout. We will have the usual grilled hamburgers and all the fixings. It will be a rainy day, but we have promised our grill master (granddaughter’s hubby) that we will take turns shielding him from the downpour with Granny’s huge blue umbrella.

At some point during the festivities we will take time to read the Declaration of Independence and explain the reason for the celebration to my great-granddaughters. The oldest is heading to 4th grade and her mom and I are concerned at misrepresentations of our history already showing up in her text books. Granny’s plan is to head the liberal educators off at the pass. These little girls will not be indoctrinated if we can help it.

Have a safe and happy 4th and remember the challenges faced by our Founders 237 years ago. Remember their courage and realize that we come from them and have courage to face what lies ahead.
