July 4th...

Freedom is never given..it is won...

I have said this before and I will say it again; I feel very fortunate to be living in the USA...
there is no better place on earth as far as I am concerned.  Even though I have
 traveled a bit I would never choose any other place to call home.

Being born in a different country makes you appreciate the USA even more.
Here we have the freedom to say and do what we like.  Here my voice
 is heard and here we have choices.  

On the evening when the fireworks are on we, always plan on being with Brutus.  
Arvid likes to make sure that the Fireworks do not scare him so we stay in.  However, 
during the day, well there are many things one can do and still get into enough trouble :)

Wishing you a happy and safe July 4th!

And I'm proud to be an American, where at least I know I'm free.
And I won't forget the men who died, who gave that right to me..

I am an American; free born and free bred, where I acknowledge no man as my superior, 
except for his own worth, or as my inferior, except for his own demerit...
