Happy Independence Day...

"The distinctions between Virginians, Pennsylvanians, New Yorkers, and New Englanders are no more. I Am Not A Virginian, But An American!"
~Patrick Henry in 1774 after the Boston Tea Party.



"Our country is in danger, but not to be despaired of. Our enemies are numerous and powerful; but we have many friends, determining to be free, and heaven and earth will aid the resolution."
~Joseph Warren, 1775


"We must all hang together, or assuredly we shall all hang separately."
~Benjamin Franklin at the signing of the Declaration of Independence



"There! His Majesty can now read my name without glasses. And he can double the reward on my head!"
~John Hancock after signing his name in large letters on the Declaration of Independence



"These are the times that try men’s souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their county; but he that stands it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman. Tyranny like hell is not easily conquered yet we have this consolation with us, the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph. What we obtain too cheap, we esteem too lightly; it is dearness only that gives everything its value."
~Tom Paine after the Declaration of Independence


Wishin' you and your kin a happy and safe Fourth of July weekend!
Please remember folks, its more than BBQs and fireworks...



It's about our freedom, independence and the Constitution.
We must not take any for granted or allow anyone to trample them.



God bless...

When did we become a nation of citizens, not under God? When did we think our founding fathers just created a new nation for kicks? They gave their lives, and truly believed this could become a great nation. But now we have become self serving, greedy, materialistic, and we don't punish our kids and show them wrong is wrong right is right. Oh did I mention, most kids don't know who Noah, Jonah, Moses and Jesus are. And we wonder what has happened to our country. God help and forgive us all. Thanks for sharing. Cathy
