Happy Independence Day

By Rick Morris

From the FDH family to yours -- we wish you all a very happy Independence Day.

The pall that has been cast over recent Fourth of July celebrations by a protracted war in Iraq is exacerbated this year by an economic slump that has hit so many so hard in this country. It is anything but the best of times in America. However, the inspirational history of this country takes a back seat to no other land, so hopefully the spirit of excellence that has always moved us can help get us through the tough days still to come. And it's undeniably true on balance and worth remembering that for most people, living in America with everything we are given an opportunity to pursue beats experiencing the circumstances of other countries hands down.

To help you smile your way through this Fourth, here's some special friends to perform one of our country's signature tunes.
