Happy 4th of July!!!

Let us dare to read, think, speak and write.
~John Adams

The boisterous sea of liberty 
is never without a wave.
~Thomas Jefferson

I remember learning these songs from my 3rd Grade teacher Miss Everett. We'd sing them in the morning and let me tell you, we were ready for the day! I think it tapped into my past life during WWII. Anyway ... here goes!

There is a certain enthusiasm in liberty,
that makes human nature rise above itself,
in acts of bravery and heroism.
~John Hamilton

 If we restrict liberty to again security we will lose them both.
~Benjamin Franklin 

The people ... are the only sure reliance for the preservation of liberty.
~Thomas Jefferson

And what are fireworks with J.P. Sousa!? I think I posted this before but ... I have to!

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

Happy Independence Day!! 

Blessings and light!

You too Lucinda. Old Ben and Thomas were prophetic weren't they? Are you traveling this summer? I expect to see pics, even if your travels are to get out the the heatwave.
