These United States

Today Americans celebrate this wonderful country we call home. Fly your flag, throw a barbeque, run through the sprinkler, wear something red, white & blue, watch the fireworks display, remember someone who made a difference for this country, think about the Declaration of Independence (how we are called to respect all people as equals) and the Bill of Rights – the freedoms we enjoy (and should always let others enjoy - religion, speech).  When I think of these documents and the truths that lie at the core of our country I am honored to call myself an American.

Happy Independence Day!

    Happy Fourth of July!
    Love your spirit.

  2. Happy Independence day to you! (sorry, I am a day late, I know...) We were in Washington DC on July 4th about 10 years ago and watched the fireworks on the mall - it was amazing! Best fireworks I've ever seen.
