In reading everyone's posts for July 4, I got to thinking. Even though I am Canadian, I really love American History. I was homeschooled from grade 2-10, using American curriculum, so I studied much more American history than the kids in public school. Americans have always had so much passion for their cause and country. In my experience, many Canadians seem to be indifferent about our history and heritage. We never had to fight to the death for anything...no civil wars or revolutions. I'm not sure we value our freedom as much as our southern neighbours. So to all my American readers, have a great holiday celebrating your country's glorious past! The picture is of my mom (second from the left), her 6 siblings, and her parents.
