Happy Birthday, America!

Two hundred and thirty four years ago today America claimed their independence from Britain.  That very day, democracy was born.  It was due to those brave colonists who banded together and stood up against the injustices they were suffering who made America forever known as "the land of the free, the home of the brave".

So as we head out to BBQ's or the beach, swimming or the park, we should all take a moment to give a silent thank you to all the men and women who put their lives on the line in order to maintain the very freedom our forefathers fought to gain.  Because, in reality, Freedom isn't really free.

Happy 4th of July!  Have a happy and safe one.


  1. Beautifully said. I hope your 4th was exactly what you wanted. We were quite laid back this year and I don't believe I saw one firework - which is perfectly fine, but the sentiment of just enjoying each others company was very prevalent and that was very welcome. Enjoy your week. =)

  2. What a beautiful tribute...I love its sentiment. Hope your celebration was fabulous.

    Cheers: Evi
