Many areas around the United States are experiencing a flare-up of Covid-19. You CAN celebrate Independence Day from home. Thank a veteran or write letters. Get your 'Disney on'; watch Hamilton. Grab your favorite movie snack and hold a marathon of your favorite patriotic movies. Try something new. Listen to a history podcast.
Thank a Veteran. Write a check to support organizations dedicated to helping vets. Two worthy organizations to consider are 4 Paws 4 Patriots and Wounded Warrior Project. Donate your frequent flyer miles through Hero Miles. Support their family; hire a military spouse. Buy from veteran-owned businesses. Find out more at Coalition for Veteran Owned Business.
Write Letters. There are many organizations like Operation Gratitude, Support Our Troops, and Operation We are Here where you can send cards and letters to military personnel, home front families, wounded warriors, families of the fallen, and veterans. Letters are welcomed and wanted year-round!
Watch Broadway's Hamilton. Broadway is closed for 2020 due to Covid-19. But you can enjoy the original production of this hugely popular musical about the life of Alexander Hamilton on Disney+ beginning July 3rd.
Hold an American Movie Marathon. These are some of my favorite patriotic movies to get you started.
Listen to a podcast. Here are a few podcasts that I've been enjoying. You can listen to podcasts on free apps like iHeart Radio, Podbean, Stitcher, and Spotify.
To sum up, you CAN celebrate Independence Day from home. Ways to do this are thanking veterans, old-fashioned writing letters, watching Hamilton, holding a movie marathon, and listening to podcasts.
