Patriotic Holiday

Greetings and Salutations to All my Kith and Kin and All the Ships in Outer Space:

I just want to remind everyone that the day after tomorrow, Saturday 19 April 2008, is a VERY important American patriotic anniversary.

It was on the morning of
19 April 1775, two hundred and thirty-three years ago, that seventy-seven men and boys stood on the village green at Lexington, outside of Boston, Massachusetts, facing eight hundred highly trained professional soldiers of the World's most powerful and best equipped army.

Hopeless odds, right?

The British Army had been sent to seize their firearms.

Then was fired the "
shot heard 'round the World
", and the American Revolution had begun.

Do you have any ideas on how to properly observe this extremely patriotic event?

One of the best movies I've ever seen on this subject was
, starring Tommy Lee Jones.

I also like seeing the
Walt Disney movie, JOHNNY TREMAIN.

What can we do to make this day an officially proclaimed national holiday, with all the proper pomp, pageantry, and festivity it deserves?

How shall we pass this knowledge on to the children, and to future generations?

Thank you.
