For those who are celebrating today, I hope you have a wonderful 4th of July! Wishing you cold watermelon, sparklers, small town parades, flag cakes, and blankets on green grass for firework watching.

I’ll leave you with my favorite lyrics from a patriotic hymn:

America! America!
God mend thine every flaw,
Confirm thy soul in self control,
Thy liberty in law.

— from America the Beautiful

I’m not much of a fourth fan, but I do love that hymn and you’ve chosen my favorite verse.

Belated happy independence day! Too bad I was in Asia that day. My family and I celebrated it with a fun dinner at this adorable restaurant in Japan. We couldn’t be so loud about it, of course, but at least in a way we were able to celebrate.
