Everyone Loves Independence...

By
Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Realty - Topsfield, MA 92593-B

One of the Greatest Documents written in our history, as a nation, is the Declaration of Independence, in my opinion. It is a document that Thomas Jefferson sweated over to get it just right  I believe the following words are the most important.

"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, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness"

With all that's happening in our country I do hope, WE, the Silent Majority, need to start raising our voices to counter the radical 10%. The only way to defeat a bully is to stand up to them. This is also true regarding our government.   

..."deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed" 

I love our country. There is nowhere else I'd rather be and I am proud to be an American. 

Happy Birthday America and Happy Independence Day!.

Happy Fourth, Doug. Regardless of the side of the fence any of us are on, it's important that we remember that we're on the same side when it comes to how much we love and owe our country, and, hopefully, we'll all come together to do what's right for the country we love.

Thank you Kathy Streib and a Happy 4th to you and yours. The time has come where We the People have to put our differences aside and join ourselves for a common cause to stand against the tyranny of violent left-wing radical groups.

The 4th of July, Independence Day, is a moving one for me Patricia Feager, MBA, CRS, GRI,MRP as I remember those men and women I served with & wishing I was young again and still serving. Those who signed the Declaration put Everything they had on the line Everything. Are we ready to do the same for the sake of our nation?

Doug those flyovers are wonderful, we had the vintage ones fly over a month or so ago in my part of the world as well as the fast ones. I have a funny story about those...Diane and I went to see them since the park is two blocks from our house.... I was going to post about it.... but discretion is the better part of valor...Endre

Hey Endre Barath, Jr. A couple of years ago Pam & I went to Kennebunkport, ME for a lobstah boat cruise. We found out the Bushes were at their compound and it was George HW Bush's birthday. He being a WWII pilot (Torpedo Bomber) must have enjoyed his birthday gift, because we did. The skies were filled with vintage aircraft. The even had a Japanese ZERO in a dog fight with a P-51. 

The waters were filled with US Secret Service boats...lol

Hi Scott Godzyk 

The Japanese underestimated Americans. So has the media and violent radicals.

We'll get through this but there are still about 4 months to go to the elections.
