AtoZChallenge…I is for Independence Day

I started the AtoZChallenge in 2016 with a generic plan of AtoZ, as I was new to the blogosphere and had so much to learn.  I met many new friends and learned much about blogging.  Very great experience.  For the  2017 AtoZChallenge I thought I would step out of the box and do the challenge with a theme. I have a love of Hockey and our Chicago Blackhawks were headed for the playoffs again.  The timing of that theme would be spot on.   I grew my blog and continued learning about blogging and Hockey.  So begins the 2018 AtoZChallenge and my theme this year is Quotes made famous by the movies.  I hope you are enjoying this as much as I am enjoying writing and researching.  I have also came across this thing called, “Blog Hop.”   I’m going to have to learn more about this.  Looks like fun and feel free anyone to explain it to me.  That’s one thing that I love about blogging, always something knew to learn about.

This was a fun, fun movie.  It was released during the summer,1996 and I can’t tell you how many times I’ve watched it.  I remember we took the whole family out to the theater for a movie night.  Great memories !!!  Now I know there are some really great quotes from this movie…

‘Independence Day’ Movie: Top 10 Best Quotes From the Film

Independence Day, Independence Day Movie, Independence Day Quotes, Independence Day Movie Quotes, Independence Day 2, Independence Day 2015

1. “Mankind.” That word should have new meaning for all of us today. We can’t be consumed by our petty differences anymore. We will be united in our common interests. Perhaps it’s fate that today is the Fourth of July, and you will once again be fighting for our freedom… Not from tyranny, oppression, or persecution… but from annihilation. We are fighting for our right to live. To exist. And should we win the day, the Fourth of July will no longer be known as an American holiday, but as the day the world declared in one voice: “We will not go quietly into the night!” We will not vanish without a fight! We’re going to live on! We’re going to survive! Today we celebrate our Independence Day!
– President Thomas Whitmore

2. A toast, to the end of the world.
– David Levinson

Watching the official trailer, there were some other really good quotes from the movie.  I also saw a trailer for a movie that’s coming out this summer, “Meg.”  Looks like another movie you’ll have to leave your brain out in your car, but it looks like a fun movie.  Enjoy the trailer…

  1. The movie was so much fun. Really good. I took the whole family and it’s another one I watch when ever it’s on 🙂

    • Thanks Iain. Sequels are hard to capture the same emotions. I don’t usually even go to them. Rocky and Rocky 2 were pretty good…Thanks for stopping by.
