Happy 4th of July!

I leave you, hoping
that the lamp of liberty will burn in your bosoms
until there shall no longer be a doubt
that all men are created free and equal.
~ Abraham Lincoln
Ojai, California

Educate and inform the whole mass of the people...
They are the only sure reliance for the preservation of liberty.
~Thomas Jefferson

Let us tenderly and kindly cherish, therefore,
the means of knowledge.
Let us dare
to read,
~John Adams

It may not be a perfect system
but we still have it pretty great!
It's a perfect time to remember those that came before us ...
Not only those that fought for us in battle
but with their words and strength of spirit,
standing up for our right to vote,
to yell
to say "NO!"
to say "YES!"
to be free.

Blessings and light to you all!
Hope everyone has a fantastic weekend!
