Today is a great day for Americans to celebrate their Independence Day, and display a fantastic sense of national pride. I searched through my photos to see if I had a picture of myself with the stars and stripes, and I found the one below from my Route 66 trip two years ago. It was taken in Carlinville (Illinois) on Day 3 of the trip. A nearby shop was advertising a fundraising draw - first prize was a gun!
God Bless America and Happy Independence Day to all Americans!
