This Week...Happy Birthday, America

 

Over the years I have expressed my gratitude that both sets of my grandparents made their way here to this wonderful country. 

 

july fourth



Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same. Ronald Reagan



While it is not a perfect home, it is my home. And I am very grateful to have been born here.

I never considered a difference of opinion in politics, in religion, in philosophy, as cause for withdrawing from a friend. Thomas Jefferson



For its 244 years, this country and the people in it have been like a family...sometimes fighting, often at odds with other family members, but always coming together when we are in need. 

 

Laws made by common consent must not be trampled on by individuals. George Washington

 



Whatever your plans are this July Fourth, I hope that you are staying safe. 



May we think of freedom, not as the right to do as we please, but as the opportunity to do what is right. Peter Marshall

Good morning Kathy Streib - I am certainly glad my great grandparents came here.  Freedom is only a generation away.  We need to make the young people understand.

What a lovely post and I think I quoted this one last 4th of July.  It is among my favorites,

It is cool with a breeze but I will still take it over the stifling heat. I am sitting on the covered patio overlooking the water.

Kathy I came to the U.S. when I was 8 years old, and I am blessed that my family made that decision.  I am proud to be a citizen of the Land of the Free.  I am amazed that so many would rather be under a controlling Socialistic/Communist form of government, than under a Free Government like ours.  May we always be the Land of the FREE!

Hi Kathy Streib - You sure picked all the right quotes. I am so happy for you that both sets of your grandparents chose the courageous path to come to this land with hope and promise.  There isn't a quote you stated that I don't agree with.  

I love the pic of your two favorite Vets...heroes in my book!
