Patriotism in America....Happy 4th of July!

 July 4th, 2010
On July 4, 1776, a group of inspired, intelligent, courageous men signed America’s Declaration of Independence, a document drafted by Thomas Jefferson between June 11 and June 28, 1776. This Declaration is one of our nation’s most cherished symbols of individual liberty and it is indisputably Jefferson’s most enduring monument to this country. And from that hot, humid day in July, 234 years ago, the pursuit of life, liberty, and happiness in America has never been the same.

I love America, and what she strives to represent, with every fiber in my body. She is by no means perfect, but compared to others, she is a shining gem.
"When in the Course of human events it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness."
Happy birthday, America, and may God bless our troops.

Quotes about America and being an American (from Frugal Cafe')
A handful of quotes about America and being an American…
I see America, not in the setting sun of a black night of despair ahead of us, I see America in the crimson light of a rising sun fresh from the burning, creative hand of God. I see great days ahead, great days possible to men and women of will and vision.
~ Carl Sandburg
America is another name for opportunity. Our whole history appears like a last effort of divine providence on behalf of the human race.

When an American says that he loves his country, he means not only that he loves the New England hills, the prairies glistening in the sun, the wide and rising plains, the great mountains, and the sea.

To me, being an American means feeling safe.

How often we fail to realize our good fortune in living in a country where happiness is more than a lack of tragedy.

~ Hamilton Fish
I think there is one higher office than president and I would call that patriot.
~ Gary Hart
Ninety-eight percent of the adults in this country are decent, hard-working, honest Americans. It’s the other lousy two percent that get all the publicity. But then — we elected them.
~ Lily Tomlin
