Happy 4th of July America


"We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America."
-Preamble to the Constitution

"I pledge allegiance to the Flag of the United States of America, and to the Republic for which it stands: one Nation under God, indivisible, with Liberty and Justice for all."
-Pledge of Allegiance

Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty or give me death!
-Patrick Henry 23 MAR 1773

  1. Freedom is a battle that has to be fought daily. We are so lucky to live in this country of ours where freedom is something we experience daily. The only problem with that is we have forgotten all of the people who died to see that we have it. Thank you for reminding us! Yaya

    And have a great 4th!
