DS: Here in my part of Texas, fireworks are banned, so I thought I'd just put them here. When I think of the 4th of July, I think of fireworks, barbecue, the beach, picnics, my family, hot summer day, beer, hot dogs and apple pie ...
I think of all our soldiers in foreign lands, and I think of all those who have died making this country the greatest nation on earth. I'm a Patriot, and all I can say is ...these colors don't run!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY AMERICA!!!
VEE: "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..." I think the Declaration of Independence is one of the most beautiful things Ive ever read. Ive also seen it in person at the National Archives and must say it is right to be guarded that closely. Truly though it must be guarded in each of your hearts for that is where it matters most. I am grateful to God for what He has done with your country because its people love Him.
