What’s happening in Charlotte this Fourth of July?

Raised in the home of a proud Air Force captain, patriotism is something that I sincerely think of daily.  I’m incredibly proud to be an American and Independence Day is one of those days each year that I love seeing my fellow Americans so enthusiastic about our freedoms.  We’re all so appreciative and humbled by those who have given themselves, their families and many, even their lives, to fight for every single one of our freedoms.

Do take 3 minutes to enjoy this video before you check out the Independence Day events in Charlotte for 2012 (below) and have a wonderful and safe holiday!
