Happy Birthday, America

During the five years that Jack and I have been married, we always listened to John Ridpath's lecture on the Declaration of Independence. However, last year someone's three-year-old daughter unraveled the cassette tape, and my efforts to wind it back up were fruitless. We forgot to reorder it, so this year I'm going to ask Jack to read aloud from the beautifully framed print we have hanging over the piano in the living room. Maybe we will start a new family tradition.

While I was tooling around online, I found that NPR also has an annual reading, which might be interesting (if you can forget it's NPR).

Have a happy, safe Fourth!
