Today is Independence Day in America. For some, it is a remembrance of the sacrifices made by brave souls in 1776. For others, it’s a reason to re-examine the lessons of the past as they look toward the future. And to others still, it’s a reason to snarf down burgers and shoot off fireworks.

Wherever you are and whatever your reasons, I hope you enjoy today.

In addition, I’d like to offer a belated “Happy Canada Day” to our friends up north!
