To me, it felt like the 4th of Julys that I remember as a child. It was the most joyous celebration the country has had since 911. The Police even reported that crime was down yesterday!
Could it be that folks are celebrating because they can see the end of the tunnel with plans for getting out of the war in Afghanistan or could it be folks feel that there is hope for the future and the beginning to the end of terrorism with the demise of bin Laden?
I was involved in a neighbourhood pizza party to honour a buddy who was too sick to host a planned June 21 pizza party. He died of a heart attack on Canada Day and we celebrated him on American Independence Day.
