"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, --That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness."
With time off from work for some, fireworks, parades, picnics, family reunions and so much more. Family and friends gather to have fun, laugh, socialize, play games, watch fireworks and eat.
A day to celebrate the birthday of the United States of America.
A day to fly our Flag with dignity and honor. Let not anyone throw our flag on the ground and stump upon her. Nor allow anyone to disgrace her.
"I PLEDGE ALLEGIANCE TO THE FLAG OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA AND TO THE REPUBLIC FOR WHICH IT STANDS, ONE NATION UNDER GOD, INDIVISIBLE, WITH LIBERTY AND JUSTICE FOR ALL."
Fourth of July always brings me smiles and joy along with swells of tears. I am free. I have a freedom that many do not have. I am proud of my heritage of being an American citizen. A freedom and heritage that came about because many along the way have been willing to fight and give their lives for. Even to this day.
Let us not forget those that have paid the ultimate sacrifice. Remember those that are this day fighting to ensure that our freedoms with prevail. Please keep these unselfish individuals in your prayers.
God Bless the USA
How will you celebrate your day of freedom? I will do my celebrating with my neighbors watching all of the fireworks that will be going upward towards the night sky saying, "Thank you" with each spark and trailer.
