Welcome, welcome everyone to another Independence Day picnic. Today we commemorate the courage of our forefathers who in 1776 through acts of bravery and self sacrifice guaranteed us the freedoms that we now see as our basic human rights. Those rights are still being protected, every hour every day, by our United States Military. I’ve spent weeks planning this party; the decorations, the food, the flowers. Because I want it to be perfect, perfect for all of us. That’s what I do, that’s what I love to do. This has been one of the most extraordinary weeks of my life. I feel both devastated and elated. Today I also feel shaken, I feel shaken by what has happened, wondering if I did enough, if I said enough could have changed the outcome. I married a committed military man. And I have loved this military life. I have also had to put my personal opinions aside, to truly understand that our defenders of freedom are fighting a bigger battle. Not a political one, there battle goes beyond politics. Beyond religion, race or gender. There the defenders for us all. There the defenders of our differences. As one soldier is taken away from us, another returns to us. There’s balance in the universe, a natural system of order. Look beside each soldier and you will find the people who fight with them. The spouses, the sons the daughters the families, we serve too. Their victories are our victories, there defeats are our defeats. Together we fight for our freedom. For 18 years I have tried to be the perfect wife and mother. Each day I disappoint myself. Human life isn’t about perfection, it is about accepting the flawed, the misguided parts of ourselves. We keep trying, we keep loving, we keep believing. I am proud of the role we play in maintaining piece in our country and in the world. I am proud to stand beside a man whose integrity shines like a diamond in the dust. And I am proud to call myself an army wife.

What's to think about? He's your son.

Roxy

Claudia Joy: I'm impressed.
Pamela: I'm jealous.
Denise: I'm speechless.
Roland: I'm not here. Please leave a message.

Joan: Given what we know, do you think we should lighten his punishment?
Roland: No, we gotta stay consistent.
Joan: I know, it just hurts.

Joan: [jokingly] When was the last time you were in a hotel? You cheating on me with someone Roland?
Roland: Couple of weeks ago, with the reporter.

Fastest way to a man's zipper; tight jeans, new haircut.

Roxy

I know you don't have children. But you should really watch those wildlife documentaries about what happens when you try to come between a mother and her child. It doesn't end well

Claudia Joy

Guy at Bar: Relax, he's just having a good time tonight.
Roxy: A good time? I'm up to my neck in other people's good times. Gettin' drunk and losing control, that's not good times. And you know what the problem is, it's never YOUR FAULT! What about the people who have to pick up the tab for that, huh? What about THEIR good times? You don't even care about the people you leave in your path!

Tonight I know what it feels like when someone you love does not come home.

Roxy

Roxy: [to Denise]: "Hits you once, hit him back. Hits you a second time, shoot him in the balls."

Joan: Well, I'm holding a town hall meeting tomorrow night showing everyone I'm willing to listen and respond to their concerns. What do you think?
Roland: Bring your Kevlar.

Everyone lives with an element of risk in their lives, but we don't have to live with ignorance and fear. And we don't have to punish an 11 year old boy because we're too narrow minded to know better.
