July 4th, 2007-Independence Day


Happy fourth of July!!! Today, I give pause to consider where I live and how I live. I'm grateful to live in this country. Grateful for those who sacrificed so much, the men and women. Grateful for Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Susan B. Anthony. Two close friends who died before seeing the 19th Amendment that gave women the vote in 1920. My mother was born in 1920. I'm just the 2nd generation since that time...2nd! That's all!!! We have GOT to make the most of that opportunity. Can I get a witness...

Oh, ya! I will witness to THAT! Tonight I was sitting on my bedroom balcony, watching the city fireworks with my famiy and thinking of how fortunate I am to live in this country. I believe it was by divine guidance that we are here today - with our flaws, I think if we look around the world, we will acknowledge that THIS is the promised land. How blessed we are.

When you are watching fireworks and just pondering about what it means to live in this country...it's enough to bring tears to your eyes.
