Happy 4th of July!

I always feel blessed on the 4th of July. I've been given many opportunities and blessings as an American and I will always be grateful. Here are some great quotes which capture the essence of what it means to live with freedom and liberty.

The cause of freedom is the cause of God. Samuel Bowles

Liberty when it begins to take root, is a plant of rapid growth.
George Washington

Peace and friendship with all mankind is our wisest policy and I wish we may be permitted to pursue it. Thomas Jefferson

Our institutions of freedom will not survive unless they are constantly replenished by the faith that gave them birth.
John Foster Dulles

My God, How little do my countrymen know what precious blessings they are in possession of and which no other people on earth enjoy! Thomas Jefferson

Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.
Martin Luther King Jr.

Let every nation know whether it wishes us well or ill, that we shall pay any price, bear any burden, meet any hardship, support any friend, oppose any foe to assure the survival and success of liberty. John F. Kennedy

Many blessings to all and a blessed 4th of July. To all who have given their lives and sacrificed for the cause of freedom.......Thank You!!
