Beer, barbecue and high treason


Every 4th of July I’m reminded of this quote from the movie National Treasure, and that the holiday isn’t about cookouts and spending the day at the lake.

“A toast? Yeah. To high treason. That’s what these men were committing when they signed the Declaration. Had we lost the war, they would have been hanged, beheaded, drawn and quartered.”

A toast to the men who risked it all for independence, and maybe a quiet moment of reflection.
