Today… oh yes we did… WE had another party. This time our party was with family. And how great is that? We ate, and swam, and talked, and played. We just hung out all night and all day.
The reason for the party? The Fourth of July. Of course. Independence Day. A day when we celebrate and rejoice the foundations of this country, the United States of the America.
And tonight, we ended the celebration with Fireworks. Perfect. Because we ALL know what FIREWORKS stands for.

E – Equality (… for all of us are equals. One and all)
W – World Citizens (the U.S.A. is a member of the planet earth. We all need to share this planet.)
O – Openness – (to our diversity and individuality)
R – Responsibility – (… and with such freedom comes great responsibility to act with respect for one another)
K – Knowledge – (the pursuit of information, and comprehension, so that we can continue to learn and grow within our freedoms)
