This Fourth of July

This weekend begins a long celebration weekend of America’s freedom. Many people won’t or don’t even know what it is all about.

Freedom is a term the younger generations think of as being free from parental rule. It’s a freedom from the iron fisted rule of England on the American colonists. It’s also a freedom from oppression and a longing for independence.

Not much difference from what the younger generation thinks. We wanted to be free of our parents “The English” and our kids want to be free of “us”.  

The Revolutionary War was in April 1775. As a young country there was much dissension and bloodshed to secure our freedoms and liberties. It was the very beginning of the creation of a great nation.

There was much loss of life. Over the course of decades we still fight for that. Many think it’s a foolish fight.

We must try to get them to remember that The Declaration Of Independence keeps us free and our Constitution backs it up. Without freedom their is war, strife, poverty, decay, dictatorship, starvation, and the stifling of our voices.

This Fourth of July please  give thanks, hold a moment of silence, give praise, thank a Veteran or whatever you can do to keep this very special holiday sacred. Because  ” 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.” If you would like to print out a copy of The Declaration of Independence go to this link:

Celebrate safely and respect the rights of others also. And don’t forget to remind your children that our country rebelled way before they did. By doing that our ancestors gave EVERYONE rights.
