Fireworks. Backyard BBQ. Family. Music. Fanfare. Sports. God. USA.

Whatever you equate July 4 with, it better come with a hearty side helping of patriotism. As we Christians know all too well, freedom indeed wasn’t free.

There was a cost on the line – some paid in tears, some in years and many paid with their lives.

We are here today, blogging ad nauseum, because of the bold and the brave, the few and the proud, the men and women who have proudly served this country since King George made a few people so uncomfortable, they bolted England for a new world in the name of freedom.

They made a home, fought for independence, pledged their allegiance to God and country and the rest is history. We are living that history today, and I couldn’t be happier.

So, to commemorate this pomp and circumstance, (and the fact that I promised My Fair Lady I wouldn’t touch this thing all weekend) I give you a video certain to bolster pride, nationalism and joy.

Have a blessed fourth of July wherever you are. Peace to all.

Now, take it away, Sam!

    Yeah, I thought that as well. But hey, they are Muppets. I don’t think Sam’s eyes really works anyway.

    BTW, notice Sam sounds a lot like Yoda. That Frank Oz… I knew a conflict of interest would get the best of him someday. 🙂

    Sam’s flag was backwards in the opening scene … The blue star field should always be at the top left (from the viewer’s perspective).

    Ah, well … Common mistake. I just thought that Sam knew better.

    Thanks for sharing, and have a great Indep. Day.
