What does Independence Day mean to you?
A day of celebration, when our democracy was born. It could have been
different, if not for the scruffy Minutemen made up of farmers, everyday
workers, and the vision of our leaders who risked their lives as well to
be free as a Republic. Our many thanks go to our servcemen and women in
harm's way this holiday, and the veterans who served before them that
have helped to preserve our cherished freedoms.
Without them, we (and other countries of the free world) would not be free today.
this poem by John Mitchum (brother of the actor Robert) recited by the
great John Wayne
"America, Why I Love Her"
Have a great 4th of July everyone.
