America.

“My God! How little do my countrymen know what precious blessings they are in possession of, and which no other people on earth enjoy!” -Thomas Jefferson

“We here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain; that this nation shall have a new birth of freedom; and that this government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.”- Abraham Lincoln

“We dare not forget that we are the heirs of that first revolution.” ~John F. Kennedy

“Above all, we must realize that no arsenal, or no weapon in the arsenals of the world, is so formidable as the will and moral courage of free men and women. It is a weapon our adversaries in today’s world do not have.” -Ronald Reagan

Happy Independence Day!!!! One of my favorite holidays because for one day out of the year, we celebrate together. Thankful for the men and women who have fought and continue to fight for my freedom. May I never take it for granted.

  1. Mary, I am so amazed that you as young as you are grasp the depth of meaning in those wise men. When you travel as much as we have you become aware of what we have in this country that no other country has….Freedom………..we must not let the very government we have fought for take away our freedom all in the name of “being good” to us. I am proud you are my grandaughter. I hope I had a small part in who you are. Love you…Granny
