Alan Weiss’s Monday Morning Memo® – 07/04/2022

Monday Morning Memo

Alan Weiss’s Monday Morning Memo® – 07/04/2022

In the US, the Fourth of July (Independence Day) wasn’t a federal holiday until 1870. This is from Wikipedia:

“The Founding Fathers of the Second Continental Congress declared that the Thirteen Colonies were no longer subject (and subordinate) to the monarch of Britain, King George III, and were now united, free, and independent states. The Congress voted to approve independence day passing the Lee Resolution on July 2 and adopted the Declaration of Independence two days later, on July 4.”

We’ve come a long way from reciting the Pledge of Allegiance in classrooms every morning or memorizing Sir Walter Scott’s famous poem about one’s native land. Too many men don’t remove their hats during the National Anthem, but I hope that’s lack of knowledge (or forgetfulness) rather than lack of respect. People do seem to cheer the Anthem vociferously before athletic events, but that may be because they know the game is about to start! (I do love the octave and a half range of the song, especially with what I think is a Bb on the last “free.”)

In 1991 I heard the greatest rendition of the National Anthem I’ve ever experienced when Whitney Houston sang it before Super Bowl XXV. When I watch it today it still brings tears to my eyes. A canonical moment. Never matched.

The oldest Independence Day Parade in the nation is taking place today in Bristol, RI about 30 minutes from where I’m writing this. There will be parades and fireworks (please be careful with your dogs) all over the country. And, of course, the anarchists and nihilists will attack this day, too, and its meaning. I’m wondering if Brown University, which calls Christmas Trees “holiday trees” as an example of its elevated status above the rest of us, will henceforward refer to July Fourth as “the day between July third and fifth”?

In this great country, flaws and all, I want to wish you all a Happy Independence Day celebrated with the spirit of living in, and defending, liberty and freedom. So many of our citizenry have died to preserve that special status.


The essence of America—that which really unites us—is not ethnicity, or nationality, or religion. It is an idea—and what an idea it is: that you can come from humble circumstances and do great things. That it doesn’t matter where you come from, but where you are going. —Candolezza Rice

For you have been called to live in freedom. Use your freedom to serve one another in love. —Galatians 5:13

This nation will remain the land of the free only so long as it is the home of the brave. —Elmer Davis
