On of the small North Fork towns read the Declaration of Independence aloud after the parade. A kid sang God Bless America, kids did the reading, and then the last reader was a local bigwig who asked “all citizens of the United States” to stand and repeat the last line together, the part about “we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor.” Gotta say, it was pretty cool.
