Happy 240th Birthday America

Well it is time to breakout the grill and get some hotdogs and hamburgers sizzling. AHHHHHH !!! I can smell it now. And don't forget the "Tater" , Macaroni, and 3 Bean Salad. Then there are the games, parades, and Fire Works later tonight. 
Two Hundred and Forty years ago a handful of people took a stand for freedom. A stand that they knew might cost them their lives. Even though they faced overwhelming odds, they stood fast in what they believed in. A revolutionary idea of a country "of the people" and governed "by the people and for the people". The first of its kind in history.



Today, we should give thanks to those brave patriots for the freedoms we enjoy today, and be ready to continue defending them. Our rights to Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness, and the U.S. Constitution that guarantees these rights to every American.



Beatrice and I would like to wish all of our friends a Happy and Safe Independence Day. 
Let Freedom Ring, and 
                God Bless America!
