Happy Independence Day 2024

Education & Training with Although I'm retired, I love sharing my knowledge and learning from other real estate industry professionals.

“The secret of happiness is freedom, the secret of freedom is courage.” 

-Carrie Jones

As we celebrate Independence Day this year, let's remember how that freedom was won. The road to our independence was not easy, and it still isn't.

This image, which I created with the NightCafe Image Creator, is a heart adorned with the stars and stripes of our flag, symbolizing our love for our country.

The drips of red falling downward represent the sacrifices made to earn and maintain our liberties. They remind us of the brave men and women who risked their lives, many of whom lost their lives, for our freedom.  Let's never forget. 

Long-time member Paddy Deighan MBA JD PhD  taught taught us about this amazing image-generating program during one of our Tuesday Zoom meetings. I love that we all learn so much from each other every week.

Happy Independence Day.
Let Freedom Ring!
