Happy Birthday America!!

We're looking forward to a fabulous weekend,
and hope you are as well.

And like last year
I may or may not drive thru the local McDonald's on my bike.

Wear some red, white and blue and despite your political outlook....
look UP and thank God for the freedom we have.
Pray for wisdom to hold tight to that which was given us.
Put on some faded blue jeans, your favorite t-shirt,
pour yourself a cup of lemonade and listen to some Johnny Cash.
Look up at the stars and remember those who are far away
fighting and dying and forging ahead.

America is changing there is no doubt.
And I wonder deeply how this land will look thru my children's eyes....
but while it is called TODAY I will celebrate the GOOD that is ours.
She is still beautiful despite her flaws.
"Now tell me, what does that mean to be noble?
Your title gives you claim to the throne of our country,
but men don't follow titles, they follow courage.
Now our people know you. Noble, and common, they respect you.
And if you would just lead them to freedom,
they'd follow you. And so would I..."
William Wallace from the movie "Braveheart"~
