Happy July 4th, 2015!

Filed under: Blog — Michael @ 10:48 am

Greetings and salutations from the sand, sun and surf of Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and the stunningly beautiful, sunny, breezy, pleasantly perfect island of Nantucket! Great to be with you on a Friday morning, this July 3rd, 2015, coming to you LIVE from a hoppin’ & hummin’ Hyannis/Hyannis Port Waterfront(s)! As the seemingly endless parade of cars, people, dogs, bikes, kayaks, and many assorted ‘picnic baskets’ continue to load onto either the Steamship Authority or the High-Line ferries, ushering all those good folks from every corner of the globe to those magical aforementioned islands that have brought much Joy to many, many souls over all these good years…

Tomorrow is, of course, OUR national holiday to commemorate the words of OUR third U.S. President and author of that most famous document “The Declaration of Independence”, independence from brutal tyranny in the form of a ruthless King in Great Britain.  That man was Thomas Jefferson, (whose draft was actually completed on July 2, 1776, but finalized two days later and adopted by the Continental Congress on July 4th), a man whose philosophy included the sentiment that we should all be afforded the right to ‘pursue happiness’. The Continental Congress accepted it’s fate, as the nation suffered for almost two more years before the British finally rolled back to England, only to reappear in the War of 1812.

The holiday was not even recognized as such until 1870, as many decided that it indeed should be a national holiday along with Christmas.  Both Thomas Jefferson and our second U.S. president John Adams died on that date, thus making it all that more hauntingly cosmic…

239 years later, Cape Cod does not look all that different, save all that technology and the level of the seas…

But the Hyannis Harbor, like the sun above, has not really changed all that much in that very short blip in ‘time’; nor does a flag that was inspired by all of the great states UNITED in one political philosophy above all?

A nation that was founded on the simple yet profound principal–”Of the people, by the people and FOR the people.’

Let that notion never, ever perish from the face of the earth.

Have a wonderful 4th!
