|Rituals as reminders|
By Mary Friedel-Hunt
Fireworks are being prepared. Floats are decorated. Picnic food is in the refrigerator and hopefully sunblock is ready to be used and will be needed. After all the rain we have seen, putting sunblock on would probably be a treat for people this Independence Day weekend.On July 2, 1776, Congress secretly voted for independence from Great Britain. The Declaration of Independence was first published two days later on July 4, 1776. The first public reading was on July 8, 1776.
