Independence Day fireworks are a staple of our 4th of July celebrations.

The real *fireworks* started with the founders of our country, the ‘radicals’ of the 1770s American Revolution.  Patrick Henry was among the most radical.  Henry did *not* approve of the United States Constitution, because he found it too restrictive.  That view led to the addition of the Bill of Rights.

From Apple Podcasts:  In honor of Independence Day, Mike Rowe chews up the scenery with a recitation of what may be the most important speech ever delivered, by Patrick Henry, the man historians call “The Forgotten Founder.”

Many of you may know Mike Rowe as the host of Dirty Jobs.  I was surprised to learn more about him.

Michael Gregory Rowe is an American television host, narrator, and former opera singer. He is known for his work on the Discovery Channel series Dirty Jobs and the series Somebody’s Gotta Do It originally developed for CNN. Wikipedia

The podcast episode above is episode 162 of The Way I Heard It with Mike Rowe.  Rowe possesses a great voice and a knack for narration.  He reminds one of the late, great Paul Harvey.

Fireworks are a great way to celebrate the ‘fireworks’ of speeches like the one Patrick Henry gave, narrated in the podcast we’re sharing.  His speech, given ad hoc, ended in one of the most well-known phrases in American history, just seven words:  Give me liberty or give me death.

We wish everyone a happy, healthy, fine Independence Day weekend, and hope you and yours get to enjoy some extra-fine Independence Day fireworks.
