It’s the 4th of July!
“For what avail the plough or sail, or land or life, if freedom fail?” ~Ralph Waldo Emerson
“America is much more than a geographical fact. It is a political and moral fact – the first community in which men set out in principle to institutionalize freedom, responsible government, and human equality.” ~Adlai Stevenson
“The United States is the only country with a known birthday.” ~James G. Blaine
“Liberty means responsibility. That is why most men dread it.” ~George Bernard Shaw
“You have to love a nation that celebrates its independence every July 4, not with a parade of guns, tanks, and soldiers who file by the White House in a show of strength and muscle, but with family picnics where kids throw Frisbees, the potato salad gets iffy, and the flies die from happiness. You may think you have overeaten, but it is patriotism.” ~Erma Bombeck
Have a great 4th and be safe in all your celebrations! May you enjoy this time of family and friends.
