Happy 4th of July!



~Author Unknown

In the year of 1776

That paper was decreed –

They were tired of oppression

And wanted to be freed

They wrote a Declaration

So the whole world would see –

This was, “the home of the brave

And the land of the free”

They signed that piece of parchment

The leaders of this land –

Knowing, divided they would fall

But, together they could stand

A new world lay before them

Untamed from shore to shore –

They swore the would protect it

If it meant going to war

Battles have been fought –

And many lives have been lost –

So sad something so basic

Has such a high, high cost

‘Seems freedom is a luxury

There’s some would bind us all –

Like then, together, we can stand

But divided, we will fall

More than two hundred years

Have past by since that day

That each of us celebrate

In our own different way

We should be proud and thankful

Pay our share of the cost –

Not take freedom for granted

For it easily could be lost



Enjoy Your Freedom
and God Bless Our Troops


A very special thanks to my dear husband Rudy for his service in the Navy, my uncles Joe, Hubert, Arnold, Curtis and Estes (whom I never met because he gave his life on Tuesday, July 25, 1944. Buried during WWII in Normandy American Cemetery; Colleville-sur-Mer, France). Special thanks also to my brother-in-law Jeffrey, my nephew Keith, and to all my cousins who have served.

A special thanks to every man and woman who has ever put on a uniform to protect our freedom and our wonderful nation


In God We Trust
Pray for America!
