Have you ever tried explaining freedom to a five-year old? Yeah, you should give that a whirl sometime. It was hard explaining to Tommy what our big 4th of July holiday was all about and why I was making everyone dress in red, white and blue and why Daddy didn't have to work and why they shot fireworks off in the sky.
Someday he will grasp and understand the meaning behind why we celebrate every July 4th. Someday he will know what freedom is and know how our country began and why this day is such a big deal. For now though he enjoyed his burgers and playing with his friends.
