Fun link to check out for the 4th: Independence Day
You have to love a nation that celebrates its independence every July 4, not with a parade of guns, tanks, and soldiers who file by the White House in a show of strength and muscle, but with family picnics where kids throw Frisbees, the potato salad gets iffy, and the flies die from happiness. You may think you have overeaten, but it is patriotism.
This, then, is the state of the union: free and restless, growing and full of hope. So it was in the beginning. So it shall always be, while God is willing, and we are strong enough to keep the faith.
~Lyndon B. Johnson
May the sun in his course visit no land more free, more happy, more lovely, than this our own country!
My God! How little do my countrymen know what precious blessings they are in possession of, and which no other people on earth enjoy!
And I'm proud to be an American,where at least I know I'm free.And I won't forget the men who died,who gave that right to me.
Have a safe and blessed 4th of July!
