HAPPY BIRTHDAY AMERICA
God Bless America … always remember the founding principle for which our country was founded … the principle that all individuals should be free.
Thank you to all those people who have come before us to provide freedom. Let is never forgot that the price of Freedom is never free. The sacrifices by those before us have echoed a life time. We may not be perfect as a country; however, what is in life. Be proud America … Its your Birthday!!! Celebrate its birth and its continued success. Do not ever forget that America is … “The Home of the Brave and the Land of the Free”.
When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.
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.–
AMERICA THE BEAUTIFUL, Ray Charles

I recommend if one ever gets the chance to spend the 4th of July in Boston, MA and go to the Promenade to see the fireworks and listen to the Boston Pops. Its a must piece of Americana. There is no tradition anywhere like listening to the Pops play “Stars and Stripes Forever” on the 4th with fireworks in the back ground.
Go to The Jawa Report and watch the video, As he died to make men holy, let us die to make men free.” Also, read the truly inspiring words of America and Americans.
We cherish our freedom, and yet Americans have, at so many crucial times, been willing to give up their own individual freedom, their own blood and treasure, and many times their lives, to bring freedom to others around the globe.
