This year, 1st time ever, I participated (walked) in a 4th of July Parade.

I've marched and stood in formation before, just not in a parade and not on the 4th.

I wore and also carried an American flag.

The weather was good. It was fun and a totally different perspective from sitting on the sidelines and watching.

I know for a fact that there were both Republicans & Democrats, Liberals & Conservatives, old & young, married & single, born in the USA and Immigrants... all seemed to be patriotic and have a great time.

No political group... no politician... no member of congress/president/governor pulled this off...

American citizens all agreed to be patriotic.... without all the other BS.... and then everyone broke off for their homes or friends homes.... BBQs.... eventually for fireworks...

I only heard on jackass who decided for a moment to try to start a political argument... he was not shut down.... not censored... but he was (ultimately) ignored... everyone else wanted to enjoy being "one" for however short of a time that might last.
