Happy 4th of July

  Today we celebrate the birth of our Nation. It is important to remember always, but most especially this day, that so many have been willing to give their lives to ascertain the freedoms that we all enjoy in America today.

All across our vast and beautiful country celebrations are being held.  From the quaint town greens in New England to the farm towns in the Midwest, from the shores of the Pacific Ocean and all across the Southland, Americans gather to celebrate.

Charlie and I are so fortunate, as innkeepers, to have guests come from all over the world to stay at our Cape Cod Bed and Breakfast in Sandwich. These international travelers frequently remind us how fortunate we are to have the freedom to express our thoughts and opinions. Even in this current sluggish economy, they remind us that we are still more prosperous than most of the world today.
We give thanks every day for the American soldiers and their families who are sacrificing so much so that we can continue to enjoy the freedom to pursue our happiness.

"While the storm clouds gather far across the sea,
Let us swear allegiance to a land that's free,
Let us all be grateful for a land so fair,
As we raise our voices in a solemn prayer. "

God Bless America,
Land that I love.
Stand beside her, and guide her
Thru the night with a light from above.
From the mountains, to the prairies,
To the oceans, white with foam
God bless America, My home sweet home.

So, fly your flags proudly and sing this song loudly. God bless America!

Jan Preus, the Innkeeper, chef, and artist in residence at the 1750 Inn at Sandwich Center, Sandwich, Cape Cod, Massachusetts
