The Colors of Independence....








When we think of the 4th of July we think of fireworks, parades, carnivals, picnics, baseball games and time with family and friends.













Its a day that we celebrate with all of our traditions the independence of the United States from Great Britain on July 4,1776.























Independence day is the national day of the United States. 




















The day the United States adopted the Declaration of Independence.



































Which has come to be considered a major statement on human rights. 
 (Wikipedia)





















 


The most famous line in the declaration is.....













We hold these truths to be self evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their creator with certain rights that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. 


We wish all of you a happy forth of July...
Danni and Julie

  16. Wonderful and thought provoking post. All too often we take what we have in this country for granted. That it is a given. I hope each one of us takes time to reflect and be thankful for all the men, women and families who have sacrificed and given so much of themselves for our freedom.

    Happy 4th!

    Cheers,
    John

  26. I never ever decorate with red -- never have, and I have no idea why. I don't dislike it or anything. These really are making me think why not use red some time? :)
