Our Independence Day…

June 28th, 2014 by Fred Westervelt

In these days of stress, uncertainty and unrest we shall contemplate deeply our independence origins and those who carried the day more than two centuries ago.. Since then, legions have devoted their lives, their fortunes and their sacred honor to the perpetuation of  this, the most spectacular nation in world history.

And we are exceptional, despite the efforts of  the various unfriendlies to reshape us for their own purposes. Early on it was the Tories, more recently the progressives from within, and adding further insult  the fanatical religious radicals who look upon us as infidels. However, the people are restless and stirring, and this, too, can be overcome. It’s a process.

Ocracoke’s celebration will include a flag raising, music and dancing, the traditional sand sculpture  contest, a fig cake bake-off, the classic car show, our old-time mid-afternoon parade, story telling and more. We’re sorry we shan’t have fireworks, but there’s another movement afoot which has misplaced priorities. It’s that process, and it must run it’s course.

God Bless America!
