July 1st is a holiday celebrating the date in 1960 when Ghana declared itself a Republic. Since the 1st fell on Sunday this year, Monday was the holiday, so no school was held. Today was a normal school day, except in the middle of my mathematics class on probability, we took a break, I unfurled my American flag and we had a short U.S. History lesson. The students clapped and cheered and we took a moment to record the occasion with this picture. That was my celebration of our Independence Day; no parade, no cook out and no fireworks. But it was excellent and one I will remember. Hope your celebration of our treasured Independence was just as meaningful
