Sweet Land of Liberty

Happy 4th of July,  the Birthday of the Signing of the Declaration of Independence!
I am so grateful to live in a Nation whose Forefathers and original Patriots had the courage and foresight to envision our  great Republic.



As we enjoy our celebrations, parades, flags, patriotic songs  and fireworks, we should never forget what these Wise Patriots created for us.
And we should also remember the advise and warnings they have given us about our nation.

“The liberties of our country, the freedom of our civil Constitution, are worth defending at all hazards; and it is our duty to defend them against all attacks. We have received them as a fair inheritance from our worthy ancestors: they purchased them for us with toil and danger and expense of treasure and blood, and transmitted them to us with care and diligence. It will bring an everlasting mark of infamy on the present generation, enlightened as it is, if we should suffer them to be wrested from us by violence without a struggle, or to be cheated out of them by the artifices of false and designing men.”                               - Samuel Adams 1722-1803



Have a Happy 4th of July!!
God Bless the U.S.A.

Until next time, Honey

  7. When our son was here last weekend with his friend Andreas it was interesting talking. Andreas worked in Saudi Arabia for the Saudis not our government and he told all kinds of stories that you don't here on the news of how corrupt and terrible they are to their wives etc. We are so blessed!
