Independence Day

Patriotic Pluto and Donald Duck on the cover of Walt Disney's ComicsIn the truest sense, freedom cannot be bestowed; it must be achieved.
--Franklin D. Roosevelt
Speech, September 22, 1936

And, just because everyone's doing it:

We will not go quietly into the night! We will not vanish without a fight! We're going to live on! We're going to survive! Today we celebrate our Independence Day!

--President Thomas Whitmore
Independence Day, 1996

Enjoy the holiday, everyone.
