"In 1776, John Adams predicted to his wife, Abigail, that America's Independence Day would be celebrated by succeeding generations as the great anniversary festival.  He wrote that 'this anniversary should be commemorated with pomp and parade, with shows, games, sports, bells, bonfires, and illuminations from one end of this continent to the other, from this time forward, forever more.'

"Since then, generations of Americans have done just that.  Each year, we look forward to the family gatherings and the grand celebrations that take place across the Nation on the 4th of July.  And, amid the music and barbeques and fireworks, we give thanks for our freedom, and we honor the bravery and sacrifices of all those who have made that freedom possible." -- G. W. Bush, 01 Jul 2006
