Grateful for Our Independence


Citizens of our United States rejoice, revel in the joy of our independence, and be grateful for all it affords us.  Yet, be vigilant and on the ready, for today almost two and a half centuries later, there are those outside, and among us who seek to deny our freedom, and unthinkably to discriminate against certain Americans they don’t like.  Celebrate and remember the words of these great people…

One flag, one land, one heart, one hand. One Nation evermore.  Oliver Wendell Holmes

The Declaration of Independence was always our vision of who we wanted to be, our ideal of freedom and justice, how we were going to be different, and what the American experiment was going to be about. Marian Wright Edelman

Those who deny freedom to others deserve it not for themselves. Abraham Lincoln


The greatest gifts you can give your children are the roots of responsibility and the wings of independence. Denis Waitley

May we think of freedom, not as the right to do as we please, but as the opportunity to do what is right. Peter Marshall

Those who expect to reap the blessings of freedom must, like men, undergo the fatigue of supporting it. Thomas Paine

My dream is of a place and a time where America will once again be seen as the last best hope of earth. Abraham Lincoln
