I have had this idea for a few weeks- to make a new video that highlights the reasons behind Independence Day. So many people look forward to a time with friends, great food, music and fireworks, but we often forget why we have this wonderful holiday.
I wanted to create a video that captures what we have lost; a sober look at how many people over the past 400 years have given their lives to create a new, free world.
My little 'poem' of sorts (and I'm not a poet either) for the video is:
Let us never forget
The sacrifices made,
The journeys taken,
And the battles won.
And may we all, indeed, never forget.
