Patriots' Day

This is a holiday that should be celebrated nationally, not just in Maine, Massachusetts, and Wisconsin. This is the day that basically commemorates the beginning of the Revolutionary War. Without the men and women who supported all the efforts of those committed to freedom, where would we be today? Thanks to those whose names we know so well - Patrick Henry, John Paul Jones, Paul Revere, Nathan Hale - and those who remain unknown to so many of us. It's been 235 years and we are still a grateful nation. Just wish all Americans had a chance to remember and celebrate your sacrifices.
