On this day, July 4, I wish you a joyous and Freedom filled life!
What a blessing that I pray we shall never take for granted.
In tribute, may I share the words of several of our founding fathers:
“You will never know how much it cost my generation to preserve YOUR freedom. I hope you will make a good use of it.” John Adams
“The price of freedom is eternal vigilance.” Thomas Jefferson
“What we obtain too cheap, we esteem too lightly: it is dearness only that gives everything its value. Heaven knows how to put a proper price upon its goods; and it would be strange indeed if so celestial an article as freedom should not be highly rated.” Thomas Paine
And let us not forget the words of Frederick Douglas…
"I have said that the Declaration of Independence is the ring-bolt to the chain of your nation’s destiny; so, indeed, I regard it. The principles contained in that instrument are saving principles. Stand by those principles, be true to them on all occasions, in all places, against all foes, and at whatever cost."
May everyday be as sacred and special to all of us as is the 4th of July!!
Smiles, have a GREAT week and Keep on Seeking…Mark
