Remember why we celebrate
Since this day more than 200 years ago, the U.S. population has exploded.
According to www.census.gov., it has grown from 2.5 million people in 1776 to 304 million today.
Soldiers and war veterans are frequently honored on July 4 for putting their lives at risk for their country. At Temple Baptist Church tonight, veterans are invited to participate in the Parade of U.S. flags.
Earlier this week, the Methodist Children’s Home invited Fort Polk soldiers and retired Air Force Col. Roger Taylor to their annual patriotic program to help the young people put faces with patriotism.
