In America, the 4th of July is our country's official Independence Day. We love to celebrate with barbecues, parades, and fireworks.
In order for my family to get together, travel is required. How have we gotten so separated? This is a vast country, and circumstances have sent us in various directions, hundreds of miles apart.
Will you get together with family or friends to celebrate the birth of our nation that occurred in 1776, only 240 years ago? (We are a very young country!)
