Via Mario Balotelli’s Instagram, here he is reading “I Am Zlatan” while doing a bunch of other things.

Balo may be a little crazy and hard to deal with on the pitch, but then there’s this.

Happy Fourth of July!

238 years ago, the Continental Congress adopted the Declaration of Independence. And John Adams envisioned future celebrations of the event.  In a letter to his wife, he wrote:  “It ought to be commemorated, as the Day of Deliverance by solemn acts of Devotion to God Almighty.  It out to be solemnized with Pomp and Parade, with Shews, Games, Sports, Guns, Bells, Bonfires and Illuminations from one End of this Continent to the other from this Time forward for ever more.”

Despite Hurricane Arthur, the weather was beautiful in Washington, DC as we celebrated the Fourth of July at the National Archives! The day started with the signing of the Declaration of Independence, followed by the Declaration of Independence Reading Ceremony on the steps of the National Archives. 

We kicked off the day with the first #ColonialSelfie featuring the Archivist of the United States, David S. Ferriero, Thomas Jefferson, Dr. Benjamin Franklin, Linda Watters from sponsor John Hancock USA, and other founding fathers. 

Wishing everyone a happy and safe Independence Day!
