photo friday: independence day

Photo Friday: An opportunity to share some of what is beautiful and wonderful about life.

Okay... this isn't a photo, but they didn't exist back in 1776.

Our country celebrates it's birthday tomorrow. Most citizens, including me, enjoy the paid day off from work, the fireworks and the parties. That's the fun part, no doubt about it. However, it's important that each of us take a moment to acknowledge the greatness of our country and the men and women who gave their all to make it this way.

I love this country. I am not happy about the direction we are currently moving in, but I am still convinced that this is the greatness country on Earth.

"The preservation of the sacred fire of liberty, and the destiny of the republican model of government, are justly considered deeply, perhaps as finally, staked on the experiment entrusted to the hands of the American people.”
– George Washington
