Freedom. Shared. Gratitude.


(Flag from

Happy Freedom!

To all of us living everywhere.

U.S. citizens may be living on the most liberated

piece of real estate in the world.

We might not have always had the timing or words right;

we have always tried to share the idea and principles

of freedom

with whoever would listen.

So, today we go to a parade, a festival, a ball game, cook on the grill,

have a few friends over.

Look up into a dark sky and watch the rocket's glare,

grateful for the light, the noise and the joy.

Remembering all our loved ones who gave so much

so we could have more.

To share.
