Celebrate the Fourth of July

Happy Fourth of July.  This is the day that the final draft of the  Declaration of Independence was adopted.

“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness. That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed.”

Today we celebrate, as a nation, our freedom.  The right to free speech, free thinking, freedom from oppression.  The real heroes of today are our military, firefighters, police, small shop keepers and farmers.  These are the people that keep our nation free.  It is not the Politicians but the people of the United States, you and me.

So today and every day, celebrate your flag, your freedom.
