Happy 4th of July!

While this holiday started out as a revolution, it's definitely become more about fireworks and BBQs. And even though I like both of those things, and the British (very much), I think it's good for every country to remember their history--if only to avoid repeating certain things.

My friend Kristen posted this on her Facebook wall today, and I thought it would be an appropriately lighthearted look at the history behind Independence Day.

And this, this I'm just including because I love this movie, and I love this speech.

If aliens ever try to take over this planet, and I have the opportunity to give a speech, I'm stealing this one.

Happy 4th to you all! I hope you have a wonderful holiday. If you partake today, please be safe!


  1. one of the best movie speeches EVER. have a great independence day!!

  2. Have a very lovely 4th of July!!! ^_^

  3. P.S. I still love the British!

  4. I was always sad about the lack of Sequel to Independence Day but then I remember other seuels and I just imagine that that's what Robotech was.
