Fourth Of July

I am very passionate about our history- and am very saddened how there are those who are trying to make this country into something it is not...nor, was ever meant to be.  The flag, rifle and document above represent what those who went before us really mean- that this country was bought in blood by many who lost everything they had, even to their very lives, to give us freedom from tyranny.

Today, our flag carries fifty stars, a huge growth from the small union that began so many years ago- even many years before July 4, 1776.  Please take a moment to remember our ancestors who came here in the name of freedom and liberty; may neither ever be taken from us.

Remember also, please, that it's not just a holiday.

And to quote:

"Let the Fourth of July always be a reminder that here in this land, for the first time, it was decided that man is born with certain God-given rights; that government is only a convenience created and managed by the people, with no powers of its own except those voluntarily granted to it by the people.

We sometimes forget that great truth, and we never should.

Happy Fourth of July."

--Ronald Reagan, President of the United States (1981)
