Can't have the 4th without a little red, white and matter how faded! There wasn't much around this morning - but by the time the holiday weekend celebration ends on Monday, much of the events have passed. The only remaining ... and most awaited one, is the firework extravaganza at the beach! Happy Independence Day, America!

As often the case, there is a disconnect between the parades, fireworks, backyard Bar-B-Qs and other celebratory measures and the true reason for the holiday. This birthday celebration is representative of so much more - our country's principles. That 'life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness' is often taken for granted in modern days. It shouldn't be, as it can slip through our fingers if we don't handle our unalienable rights with some responsibility and respect. So, bring out the hamburgers and hotdogs, but keep your eye out for the real prize! Freedom Park, Naples, FL
