Happy Birthday America!...

"When in the Course of human events it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation."

"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."

What a wonderful concept! And what heroic men who penned this document and, on July Fourth, 1776, signed it! Thank God for people like these who had the courage, honor and dedication to give us this gift of Freedom!

This is, of course, the beginning paragraphs of the Declaration of Independence of the United States. For this Declaration, we Americans should truly thank our God!

Thank God for this Nation!

Thank God for the people who dedicate their lives to lead us!

Thank God for the freedom to come and go as we please!

Thank God for His Son, Jesus, who made the supreme sacrifice on the cross so we may have the ethical and moral concept on which this document is based!

And mostly, thank God for the brave men and women who every day and night place their lives in danger so that we all may live and love freely and without fear in this, the greatest Nation in the history of the world, The United States of America!

May God Bless Us All and give us the Courage and Wisdom to fully appreciate that Blessing!

Now let us celebrate this Holiday and be truly thankful for being the most fortunate people on Earth; Americans!

Don't forget the candles. I'm referring to the thousands of men and women who gave their lives so we can celebrate this birthday!
I like to think they will be the lights we see tonight that burst in the skys all over the United States.

This is very like you,James to write something patroitic. I had to print it off for Herman to read. He fought in the 2nd world war and VietNam wars to keep freedom flying too. He still tells some pretty gory stories about it. We are watching the fire works from our rocking chairs. HMMMM. Carry on, Prattle
