Chicago 4th July

Our first "Ame-
rican Valen-
tine's Day"
as I called it, 4th July was like an event straight out of a Hollywood Movie. This morning we were invited to taste 'American Celebrations' in a 4 July parade in Skokie, closely followed by another in Evanston. The strangest patriotism with everyone and their dogs waving flags, something I haven't quite witnessed before. Every club, youth group, old aged home and the like parade through the streets in their vintage cars, their trucks and even in wheelchairs just to wave their flags and shout their tribute to the greatest nation on earth as some of the paraders called it!
