Independence Day

I am envious of those that were dancing in the streets in Egypt this week.  It seems we have forgotten the ideals of our forefathers.  Freedom - from many things and for many things, was the basis of our country's revolutionary genesis.  And a government of, by, and for the people.  Too many Americans have shirked their duty to be an active participant in our republic.  I hope that tide is turning.  We still have rights and remedies, and a freedom to do something about our government when it oversteps its bounds.  I am celebrating those freedoms today, with much hope for the America my children's children will inhabit.
