It’s July, which means half the year has passed. June surprised us with some 90-degree-plus temperatures — Florida weather! What will July bring? We celebrate Fourth of July – Independence Day in these United States of America with picnics, fireworks and time for reflection on how this great nation has come so far and be known as “The Land of the Free and the Brave” with the government and individuals working together to keep it that way. Incidentally, July was named after Gaius Julius Caesar, who was born in the seventh month of the year.
