Birth(day) of a nation

I know it’s not actually Independence Day yet, but I wanted to be the first to wish everyone a Happy 4th! For those who aren’t from around here, it’s truly an experience to spend the 4th in D.C. Those of us who live here get to celebrate the nation’s birthday in the nation’s capitol. It seems more personal and more affecting to be here with all of the monuments and tributes to America. If you’ve never spent the 4th here, you should try to at least once in your life.

Oh, and if you’re planning to watch the fireworks on the Mall, you might want to leave…well, now might be a good time.
