As people celebrating Independence Day in the U.S. are want to do, my neighbors are grilling all manner of food.  In the fifteen feet I walked to my car, I was assaulted by the smell of lighter fluid.  What is it about the 4th of July that makes people want to light charcoal on fire and char meats & marshmallows.  Is that motivation uniquely American?  I made enchiladas; does that make me less American?  This next Call is looking for uniquely American work.  What will you show them?

This year’s American Icon theme “Forgotten America” is your chance to show the world your interpretation of that beauty. —
