While I'm late to the party, there is a way as demonstrated almost 400 years ago; we here in the US should create our own Guy Fawkes day, not in memory but in actions:

                Remember, remember the Fifth of November,
                The Gunpowder Treason and Plot,
                I know of no reason
                Why Gunpowder Treason
                Should ever be forgot.
                Guy Fawkes, Guy Fawkes, t'was his intent
                To blow up King and Parliament.
                Three-score barrels of powder below
                To prove old England's overthrow;
                By God's providence he was catch'd
                With a dark lantern and burning match.
                Holloa boys, holloa boys, let the bells ring.
                Holloa boys, holloa boys, God save the King!
