It has been said that July 4 is the most important of secular American holidays. If not for the inclusion of pyrotechnic displays, contemporary observation of our nation’s birth typically looks like any other summertime gathering.
This Fourth of July Independence Day don’t just wave your American Flag and eat a Hot Dog! (although these are not bad ways to enjoy the holiday!)
As you enjoy this most patriotic of American holidays please make sure to take a moment to thank a current or former member of the armed services or if they are deployed, thank their spouse!
Also – remember that the North Carolina State Police are stepping up enforcement this week with numerous Driving While Impaired checkpoints so if you are planning on enjoying adult beverages make sure that you designate a driver or captain if you are boating.
